The Table - Pull Up A Chair // Chris H.

The Table - Pull Up A Chair // Chris H.

A Message on Meals, Mission, and the Heart of Jesus In today's talk, we dive deep into understanding meals not just as a mundane daily ritual but as a window to our hearts and our vision of life. Drawing from Biblical passages, we explore the profound teachings of Jesus about meals and their spiritual significance. Are our meals merely about fulfilling hunger, or do they reflect the state of our hearts? Are they about status and exclusivity, or about love, inclusivity, and sharing God's grace? Jesus prompts us to understand meals as an expression of our faith, our love, and our mission. Do take a moment to like, share, and subscribe to our channel for more spiritual insights and teachings. And don't forget to comment below about how you plan to make your meals more meaningful and in alignment with Jesus's teachings. 🙏🍽️❤️ #SpiritualMeals #Hospitality #JesusTeachings

The Table - Radically Ordinary Hospitality // Chris H.

The Table - Radically Ordinary Hospitality // Chris H.

The Gospels illustrate that if there's any strategy Jesus used for what some might call "evangelism," it's simple: open your home, share a meal, engage in genuine conversations, and most importantly, listen.

The New Testament introduces the beautiful concept of "hospitality," derived from the words that mean love and stranger. Practicing this art of turning strangers into family has profound implications. Rosaria Butterfield, a former critic of Christianity, attests to the transformative power of genuine hospitality. Remember: the Gospel comes with a house key.

Did you know that hospitality was instrumental in the rapid spread of the Gospel? From a modest gathering in Jerusalem to influencing half of the Empire – all without modern technology. It was the simple act of sharing and connecting over meals.

As we ponder on reclaiming this lost art of hospitality, we envision a world where this is central to our lives. Just as Jesus said he came to “seek and to save the lost,” we too can extend the hand of friendship and understanding, one meal at a time.

Despite the excuses we may find, whether it's a messy house, lack of cooking skills, or being an introvert, the heart of hospitality isn't about perfection. It's about connection. So, grab a seat at the table and let’s rediscover the transformative power of radically ordinary hospitality together. 🍽️🥖🍷🙏

The Table - You're Invited // Chris H.

The Table - You're Invited // Chris H.

Join us as we dive into a new sermon series called "The Table." We're delving into how hospitality can be a means for God to grow His kingdom and bless our lives. Today, we start with a powerful story from Second Samuel chapter nine about David's act of kindness towards Mephibosheth, a descendant of Saul. This story underscores the theme of grace. As we explore the richness of meals in Scripture, we'll see how God's message is often communicated at the table Learn how a simple invitation to dine can mirror the salvation and grace of God, and discover the potential your table has, no matter how small or humble, to bless those around you. Join us in this journey, and let's embrace the power of grace and hospitality.
