Looking Forward to Sunday, August 3

Communion Sunday

 

"DINNER WITH THE KING"

Matthew 14:13-20

 

Much of the teaching and action in the four Gospels takes place at mealtime. In almost all of those settings Jesus became the host—even when he was invited as a guest. In the course of conversation the people around the table would focus on Jesus and all but ignore the host who asked them to dinner. At the marriage of Cana in Galilee, he even managed to upstage the bride.

 

The sharing of table fellowship as presented by the four Evangelists looks forward or back to the Last Supper. The miracle of the feeding of the 5,000 fits the pattern. In language reminiscent of our communion liturgy, our Lord looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples.

 

Jesus the Christ, the King of heaven and earth, invites you to his table this Sunday.

 

With grace & peace,

Deane
