Isaiah 25:6-8 NIV
On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine—the best of meats and the finest of wines.  On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations;  he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
A scene of celebration, a party, with fine food and wine. What is the cause of this celebration? The coming Messiah will destroy death, do away with grief, and wipe out our guilt and embarrassment. There is powerful imagery here. Isaiah describes a shroud covering us – through our brokenness we are ‘living dead’, but Jesus brings life!
Jesus, I chose life, I chose you.
