The Table of the Lord...

We cannot live in the darkness of this world and in the light of Christ:

"You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and also the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and of the table of demons."  -1 Corinthians 10:21, NAB

The world is full of temptations.  Each one of us has our own personal demons that we face - greed, envy, lust, and so on.  These demons seek to invade our lives and pull us away from God.  Unfortunately, they are often successful at doing so.  And, the only power that they have over us is the power that we allow them to have.  It is only through our weakness that they can disrupt our lives.

If we want to sit down at the table of the Lord, we have to leave the table of this world.  Through Christ, we can overcome greed with the treasures of heaven, overcome envy with the joys that come in God's mercy, and overcome lust with the purest love.  For every sin that attempts to pull us away from the Lord, there is a virtue to overcome it.  Pursue the heavenly virtues and leave behind the sins of this world.  Drinking of the Lord's cup and sitting at His table, we can find a life greater than anything this world can offer.
