Summary: Invitational

I. Read the Text

II. Give the Background

III. Proposition/Focus: Vs 12 "Come and Dine"

IV. Describe a huge, tasty meal

This meal, in order to complete the task that it was designed to do, takes six steps to complete.

V. Divisions

--It must be PLANNED (Expound)

--All parts of meal must be PROVIDED (Expound)

--It must be PREPARED (Expound)

--It must be PRESENTED (Expound)

These four steps are accomplished by the cook

Now the one who eats the meal does his or her part:

--The one eating must then PARTAKE (Expound)

--He or she will find that it PLEASES (Expound)

VI. Draw the parallels

First - God has a meal ready for those that are hungry, those that are tired of partaking of that which sin offers for it does not satisfy the hunger in their hearts. (Expound)

Second - God also has gone through these steps to be sure the hungry has a chance to partake.

--He has PLANNED(Made the plan of salvation) (Expound)

--He’s PROVIDED all the means by which man can be saved (Expound)

--He’s PREPARED the way of salvation for those hungering for something to satisfy (Expound)

--He is PRESENTING it to all of mankind (Expound)

God has done His part - now it is up to every individual to do the rest

--They must PARTAKE of this meal (salvation) (Expound)

--If they do, they will find that it PLEASES far beyond what sin can ever do (Expound)

VII.Coclusion with invitation

*Note: I have found this more effective during the Thanksgiving season because of all the food that is generally on the people’s minds.
