Quotes from A Meal With Jesus by Tim Chester


Food matters. Meals matter. Meals are full of significance. Few acts are more expressive of companionship than the shared meal. … Someone with whom we share food is likely to be our friend, or well on the way to becoming one.

Around the table we offer friendship and celebrate life. Our meals offer a divine moment, an opportunity for people to be seduced by grace into a better life, a truer life, and a more human existence.

When you combine a passion for Jesus with shared meals, you create potent gospel opportunities.

Meals can be a visual representation of our hearts. If our hearts are concerned for position, honor, status, or approval, then that will be reflected in our dining etiquette. Consider how your meals express your vision of life. Think about who’s invited, how they’re served, what you hope to achieve, and the layout of your home. Do they express the vision of the kingdom of God?
