Finding Jesus in Your Meals (Day 13)

"He was a party animal. His mission strategy was a long meal, stretching into the evening. He did evangelism and discipleship round a table with some grilled fish, a loaf of bread, and a pitcher of wine...His 'excess' of food and 'exces' of grace are linked. In the ministry of Jesus, meals were enacted grace, community, and mission." -Tim Chester
Today is Sunday and perhaps you have some special meals planned. In Orlando the norm would be brunch at the the Farmer's Market and perhaps evening snacking while watching the big game at your favorite hang-out. Today as you gather, break bread, and eat, may you remember the creator of our food, His modeling of missional meals, and look for the sacred in the ordinary. And may your conversations be rich and your relationships be deep as you find life for both body and soul around the table.
