The meal Jesus gave us teaches us about hospitality. God welcomes us to His Table even though we might as well be strangers … in light of this, how could we not welcome others?
Sermon Category: Luke
Luke says “when he had given thanks,” (see v. 17 & v. 19). In the Greek that’s eucharistesas. This whole sermon (and really, all of Sunday worship today) will be about Eucharist—i.e., thanksgiving or gratitude.
Today’s sermon presents the opportunity to talk about some of the traditional themes of Lent: following Jesus, denying ourselves, and taking up our cross. It’s a call to a cruciform way of life. Lord have mercy.
