    And as they did eat,

    Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said,

    Take, eat: this is my body.

    And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks,

    he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.

    And he said unto them,

    This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

    Mark 14:22-24

    Last Sunday, it occurred to me that hearing a good sermon is like eating a good meal, both in quality & quantity.

    You know.  Someone invites you to their house for dinner, and they bring out a complex dish.  Everything it blended beautifully and you can taste all of the many different ingredients.   You hold it in your mouth a little longer just to savor it a few extra seconds.  Thanksgiving is coming up.  Some people have trouble cooking in small quantities; so even if you show up unexpectedly, you know they’ll have enough for you.  It’s wonderful when a great cook makes a lot of food, because then maybe you can go home with a doggy bag that you can eat for lunch the next day.  Quality & quantity, a great combination.

    Rich sermons are good meals.  I get new insight and understanding (quality) that is so powerful that I end up reflecting on it for several days; and I can apply the new understanding to different areas and situations in my life (quantity).

     And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,

    This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

    Likewise also the cup after supper, saying,

    This cup is the new testament in my blood,

    which is shed for you.

    Luke 22:19-20

    • I always go to the sermon hungry and return full and satisfied. I have eaten many many meals for many years and I will continue to do so before I die, but only God’s word can truly fill my spiritual hunger and quench my thirst of my soul.

      Thank you for sharing your post.
