Taste and See the Lord is good!December 8, 2020
“Taste and see that the Lord is good” is a direct quote from Psalm 34:8. So how can we apply that TODAY in real life?
Three quick ideas on how you can help others taste and see the Lord is good today:
If you eat out, pray with a thankful heart for whatever you eat or drink and acknowledge the talent of the person who prepared and served you. Ask them if there is a way you can pray for them as you thank God for the blessing of their service and the food. Same applies if your food is being delivered by GrubHub, UberEats, DoorDash, or some other service. Every encounter today is an opportunity for witness – make a positive one for Christ!
If you have the rare privilege of sharing a meal today with anyone else, pray with them that Christ would be made known between you and through you to others in the breaking of the bread. Read the scriptural basis for this idea in Luke 24:13-35
Reflect and journal: Think about all the stories you know from the Gospels where Jesus shares a meal with people. The meal at the home of Mary and Martha, the meal where the woman washes Jesus’ feet with her tears, anoints them with expensive nard, the meal at the home of the tax collector who becomes the disciple Matthew, the meal at the home of Zaccheus, and of course the Last Supper Jesus shares with his disciples in the Upper Room on the night he is betrayed.
Every meal Jesus ate, he ate with sinners. There’s a lesson in there for us. But there’s another meal prepared and set as a wedding feast for Christ the Son of God to share with all those redeemed through Him.
A feast awaits!
In Revelation 9:6-9 we hear the angel declare, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” O that we might live today in great anticipation of that day – and help others taste and see that the Lord is good on this Tasty Tuesday!
