Podcast Running Time: 21m, 12s
What will be at your table this Thursday? Like 90% of Americans, you’ll likely go traditional, serving turkey, mashed and sweet potatoes, dressing, cranberry sauce, perhaps a casserole of either beans, squash, sweet potatoes – or all three! Then, of course, topping it all off with the famous pumpkin and/or pecan pies.
It’s not likely your table will resemble the first thanksgiving meal in 1621…
Let’s zero in on 10 things that could elevate your dinner to an even higher, more memorable, event…biblically speaking.
These are a few of the Scriptures we’ll be considering on this week’s podcast as we look at our metaphorical table from every angle:
Matthew 23:6,11 (BBE)
And the things desired by them are the first places at feasts…But let the greatest among you be your servant.
Romans 12:13 (ESV)
Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
Luke 14:23 (The Voice Bible)
And the host said, “Well then, go out to the highways and hedges and bring in the complete strangers you find there, until my house is completely full.”
2 Corinthians 4:7 (ESV)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
Romans 5:9-17 (ESV)
Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation…For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many…For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
