Feasts and meals are a common theme throughout the Bible. In the Old Testament God designed annual festivals and feasts for His people to remember His faithfulness, and in the New Testament we see countless times where Jesus arranged or invited himself to meals. Sharing a meal with others brings people closer together. Maybe that’s why one of Jesus’ last acts before He died was breaking bread with those closest to Him. At CCV we take the opportunity each week to get closer to God by taking communion, which reminds us of Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins.
John 6:35 says, “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’”
When we sit at the table for Christmas dinner, it’s another opportunity to thank God for sending his Son, Jesus, knowing that through Him, we could have a right relationship with God.
How do you plan to put Jesus at the center of your Christmas day?
