A Seat At The Table

November 17, 2013


Series: The Table

Message: A Seat at the Table

Key Text: Exodus 12-14


Synopsis:

The table, it has been a part of the community of God’s people for centuries.  People would and still do sit around the table to eat, to drink, to share in one another's company, to remember, to reflect, to celebrate.  The first feast we see in scripture is the Passover.  As God was leading His people out of 400 years of bondage in Egypt they ate a meal together the Passover.  It was a meal that was to be eaten every year as a reminder of the goodness of the Lord.  During that night God would pass through the city killing every first born unless the blood of the lamb was on the doorframe of the house.  It the blood covered the frame then the angel would passover the house, sparing the life of the first born.  Think about it, all they had to sustain them through the night was the hope that the blood of the lamb would spare their life.  It is the same hope we celebrate each week.  Each week we gather around the table and we share the wine and the bread. Still do sit around the table to eat, to drink, to share in one anothers company, to remember, to reflect, to celebrate.  We have been invited to have a seat at the table.
