I love food. I mean, I really love food. This past weekend was filled with so many great things; Fall Festival, Texas A&M victory, and great worship on Sunday. And yet, three of the best things that happened to me this weekend included: the chiliburger I had at Fall Festival on Saturday, the brisket lunch on Sunday at the mission’s auction and the cookie/brownie bars that our ACCESS worship leader Morgan Anderson baked for ACCESS on Sunday night.
I cannot express how much I love food.
As significant as meals are to us today, in the time and culture of Christ, they were even more important. Meals in that time and culture quite often carried social, political and spiritual significance depending on the circumstance. These already important events became even more interesting when Jesus showed up.
The Gospels contain several stories of Jesus at meals. This reinforces the idea that meals were significant at the time. God has a lot to teach us through these encounters, and for the next four weeks we’re going to study some of the most interesting meal stories that we find in our Holy Scriptures, in a series at ACCESS we’re calling:
*Spoiler alert, it’s Jesus who’s coming to dinner.
I really hope that you will join us over these next four weeks as we learn from what Christ did and how he acted in these different settings. We will, of course, be enjoying delicious food ourselves as we track with Christ through this series. More on that next week!
I hope to see you there on Sunday at 5:30pm!
Have a wonderful week my friends,
