Today my pastor's lesson was on the Lord's Supper. He spoke on the importance of eating in the bible, and how the Lord used meals as a time to teach us more about Him and bring us together and learn more about each other. One meal in the bible that really had new light shed on it was the Passover. I have heard about the Passover feast many times on my almost 44 years, but I had never realized that the Passover itself was God revealing what he was going to do for us in Jesus. The blood of the Lamb without blemish (Jesus) was spread over the door post (Cross) to keep those inside from suffering from death. Wow! What an amazing foreshadowing of what was to come for all of us. God is amazing in using everything in His book to point to Himself and to also show us that He loves us.
The funny thing was that Pastor Dean asked us to think of the best meal we have ever had. Most would think of the famous restaurant they have ate at...or the most expensive. Funny thing was that what popped into my mind wasn't any of those. It was a meal that I had with my community group at Sir Pizza in Randleman when we had pretty much everyone there. I remember standing at one end of the room we were in and looking at everyone interact. It was a surreal feeling, like I wasn't there and watching everyone talk to each other. But, I was there of course and enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, this past Thursday, I ate Thanksgiving with my family and parents and was a great time, but my favorite meal so far in life was eating pizza with the rest of my family at Sir Pizza.
