Sermons from September 2015
The phrase at the beginning and end of this sermon refers to Jesus as “the servant” of God. So my outline combines the two themes with the servant figure.
In chapters 3-4 we see the intricate connection between the physical & spiritual realms. This temporal/physical healing has eternal/spiritual significance.
Regarding the breaking of bread; as the Lord shows us hospitality, so we are to show hospitality to others. Even though “breaking of bread” is found in verse 42 and 46, it is not exclusively talking about the Lord’s Supper, nor is it exclusively dealing with table fellowship. There is a complimentary connection between the two: Because Christ receives us at his table, we ought to receive others at our table.
