VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Serve the LORD while eating and drinking

"Will he not instead tell him, Get my supper ready and gird yourself and serve me while I eat and drink;"

The exact opposite has happened. The LORD who is the LORD of lords serves us.

Matthew 20:28 (Amplified Bible)

20:28 Just as the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [the price paid to set them free].

Luke 22:27 (Amplified Bible)

22:27 For who is the greater, the one who reclines at table (the master), or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at table? But I am in your midst as One Who serves.

Philippians 2:7-8 (Amplified Bible)

2:7 But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.

2:8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!

CHRIST waited on us and until now, He is serving us, for continously giving His life to us, He is always in our midst serving our needs.

Matthew 18:20 (Amplified Bible)

18:20 For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

We serve the LORD by giving glory to Him before, while and after eating.

1 Corinthians 10:31 (Amplified Bible)

10:31 So then, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you may do, do all for the honor and glory of God.
