Jesus Didn’t Start Programs; He Ate Meals

Tim Chester, from his book, A Meal with Jesus:

Jesus didn’t run projects, establish ministries, create programs, or put on events. He ate meals. If you routinely share meals and you have a passion for Jesus then you’ll be doing mission. It’s not that meals alone save people. People are saved through the gospel message. But meals create natural opportunities to share that message in a context that resonates powerfully with what you’re saying.

So go preach the gospel with a meal.

    Amen to this! Food brings people together… So simple, yet true and an effective way of sharing with people your faith.

      Thanks, Miss Buyer.

      In the book, Chester makes the argument that this kind of bringing people together is exactly what Jesus did, it shows off God’s grace in bringing strangers to His table, and it’s a good way to preach the good news that Jesus Christ came to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.

      Thanks for dropping by, and come back again anytime,
