They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

Acts 2:42

One of the things I love about Village Church is our dinners together. Food is a wonderful way to celebrate togetherness, to serve one another and to enjoy each other in Christ. When we do this, we partake in a tradition from the earliest converts to Christ.

Acts 2 reminds us that this is something the Church has done since its infancy. These early Christians recognised that love was so effectively shown and shared over a meal. 

Can I encourage you to keep sticking around for dinner? To say no to other options and prioritise this time together? To encourage one another, to welcome the visitor and to glorify God as we reflect on His Word and relate to each other in love? 

I know it’s a bit of a sacrifice sometimes. But it’s one worth making.

For Today:
  • Have you found dinner helpful? Why/why not?
  • Do you always sit next to the same people? Could you say hello to someone new?
  • How could you make the most of our Sunday dinners?

  • Praise the Father for the food He provides.
  • Give thanks that in Christ we look forward to the forever feast of the new creation. 
  • Ask for His Holy Spirit to help us continue to love one another as we share in meals.
