Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 2

Meals as Historical Turning Points Let’s give a short synopsis of how Scripture’s storyline and historical turning points are built around meals: God’s blessing began in the garden with a meal (Gen. 1:29). God gave Adam and Eve a choice to eat of blessing or curse, symbolized in the Tree of Life and Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The curse, fall of mankind, and Satan’s temptation happened over a meal (Gen. 2:16–17). The first...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 1

Meals as Method Have you ever wondered why the whole story line of Scripture is shaped around meals? Have you found yourself the least bit curious as to why the entirety of Jesus’ ministry is summed up in Luke 7:34 as “the Son of Man came eating and drinking?” Let’s do some digging. I find it fascinating that God did not start the creation in the context of a 501(c3) non-profit, a building, a cabinet, a district, a board, or an...

Honoring Christ In Audio Mixing-Day 3

Singing Savior The Bible tells us that when Jesus came up out of the waters of Baptism he heard a voice from heaven saying, “this is my Son, in whom I’m well pleased.” Now let’s couple this occurrence together with a couple visual images in order to make one big point. First, consider the singing of the birds in light of Jesus’ Baptism. Research has shown that where birds are present and singing, things grow and flourish. Where birds...

Honoring Christ In Audio Mixing-Day 2

Hear Jesus says, “to those who have ears let them hear.” In Bible times, hearing was a necessity, even over that of the other four senses. Only about 2% of the population could read, and so they heard information. Fun Fact … did you know, that sound resonates in the brain faster than through sight? It also enters first through the spine. It rouses the work of the body before the mind. Sounds educate people differently than do...

Theological Sound A study was done in which gardens were planted in different and yet identical greenhouse environments. The only thing that varied from greenhouse to greenhouse, was the music.Various boom boxes were placed next to the plants to serenade them with tunes as they grew. One greenhouse played classical. Another, metal. Another, rock. Another, pop etc. By the end of the experiment, the only plants thriving were the ones...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 3

A Hotel or a Home We sadly treat the church today like a Hotel not a Home. In a hotel, one comes in and uses up resources. We empty the toiletries, mess up the bed, and get waited on hand and foot. This is sadly how we expect the world around us to work, and it’s sadly what’s happening in our world today. We are using up resources, devouring people, and expecting that everything will wait on us and our every desire. This is not the...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 2

One Anothering The Bible is filled with countless “one another” statements. We are a family as Christians. No Christian is exempt from the pastoral work of love, and yet often we do just that—we leave it to the “staff” to do the “work of ministry.” However, through Christ’s saving work at Calvary, we ALL have become a family bound together in unity in familial relationship. We are called to live in peace with each other, we are called...

Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 1

The Meal and Home In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17-34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...
