Last week I was in Grand Rapids working with a church and visiting friends. It was a week of extremely demanding work and of wonderfully rich fellowship. Each evening was filled with good friends, great food and meaningful conversation. Dinner with friends is truly one of life’s best blessings.
In the days the Scriptures were recorded eating together carried with it deep cultural implications. To accept an invitation form someone meant more than just the proper social graces. It was an invitation to a relationship. A relationship that was more than friendship. It was to enter into a covenant of trust, acceptance and mutuality. You see, to eat together meant you could never become enemies. You were bound from that moment forward to always have each other’s best interests in mind.
This Sunday we will do the one thing Jesus commanded us to do to “remember him,” to eat together the symbolic meal of the Lord’s Supper. When we break the bread and take of the cup we make the memory of the relationship we have with Him as real as the taste, the texture and intimacy of eating. Something so seemingly small, a bite of bread and a sip of the cup, is enormous in what it means. It means, because of the finished work of the cross of Christ we can now be not only no longer enemies but indeed friends.
So this weekend, join us for a memorable message and a small but, oh so, meaningful meal…with friends.
