Mac n' Cheese and Jesus, Please!

mac n cheese and Jesus please

When we think about comfort foods, mac and cheese often comes to mind. It's warm, and filling, and brings a sense of nostalgia and joy. Much like our favorite mac n cheese, Jesus brings comfort, nourishment, and a sense of belonging into our lives.


As we continue our Summer Lovefest through 1 Corinthians 13, we are reminded to "love one another." This simple yet profound command is like the cheesy goodness in our favorite dish – it binds us together and makes everything better. When we gather together in fellowship to share a meal, we are living out this love.


Acts 2:42 tells us, "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." Just as the early Christians did, we too come together, sharing not just food but our lives, our joys, and our burdens.

In the Bible, sharing a meal is a primary way to establish, deepen, and enjoy relationships with God and others. Whether it’s a grand feast or a simple bowl of mac n cheese, the act of eating together carries deep symbolism and meaning:


  1. God's Kingdom: Prophets often compared life in the new heavens and earth to a divine banqueting table. Our shared meals remind us of the heavenly banquet we look forward to.

  2. Inclusivity: Jesus shared food with people from all walks of life, extending grace and friendship to everyone. Our table, like His, is open to all.

  3. Table Fellowship: The early Christians’ warm and accepting table fellowship is something we continue today, sharing meals with gladness and simplicity.

  4. Deepening Relationships: Meals are a time to stimulate one another spiritually, grow closer, and learn generosity. They invite intimate conversations, laughter, and a spirit of togetherness.

  5. Community: Sharing a meal fosters true community and builds genuine fellowship. It’s a chance to come together, to be nourished physically and spiritually.


So, as we gather for Mac n Cheese Sunday, let's remember that our love for mac n cheese and our love for Jesus bring us together in a special way. Just as we crave that warm, cheesy goodness, let us also crave the warmth and comfort that comes from fellowship with one another in Christ.


Join us on Sunday, July 14th, 2024 for Mac n Cheese Sunday at St. Matthew's. Bring your best mac and cheese in a crock-pot to share and indulge in a variety of delicious recipes at our ultimate mac and cheese bar.


Let's break bread (or mac) together, deepen our relationships, and celebrate the love of Jesus in our community. See you there – because nothing says "I love Jesus and mac n cheese" like sharing a meal with friends and family. Amen!
