Table Talk: Sitting With Jesus


Table Talk is a four-session sermon series that will focus on four conversations Jesus had while sharing meals with His disciples and others. This series will challenge your students to evaluate their heart posture toward things like repentance, love, busyness, and pride and consider how their lives can reflect the heart of Jesus at the table.

Meals are important to us today, but in the first century, they were nearly sacred. By taking advantage of long, unrushed meals around tables with His disciples, sinners, and Pharisees, Jesus revealed much of His heart and the purpose of His ministry. Table Talk will take a deeper look at what Jesus said during meals in the Gospel of Luke to see what we can learn about Him, His heart for the people around Him, and the way He would have His followers live.

    • Any large group setting

    • "Master teacher” format 


    • Session 1 – Jesus, The Physician (Luke 5:27-32) | It’s tempting to alleviate the shame and guilt we feel from our sin by comparing ourselves to others. When we create a gradient of sin, we quickly fall into pride and self-righteousness, but Jesus has come to call sinners to repentance, not the righteous. We all have to be reminded that we can’t truly repent and follow Jesus until we can admit we’re all sinful and desperate for God’s grace.
    • Session 2 – Jesus, The Friend of Sinners (Luke 7:36-50) | Uninvited dinner guests are usually not a welcome sight, but Jesus uses the arrival of a woman widely known as a sinner to test the hearts of those around Him. Her deep-felt awareness of both her fatal sin and the all-encompassing grace of Jesus drove her to an extreme expression of love for her Messiah. In the same way, our love for God should increase the more we become aware of both our sin and the abundance of His grace. 
    • Session 3 – Jesus, The Better Thing (Luke 10:38-42) | We often equate busyness with godliness or measure our worth by how much we do. And in a culture with no shortage of distractions and tasks, we can easily fall into the trap of letting good things become main things. Martha let her “much serving” distract her from the better thing, Jesus, but in reality, we honor and please Jesus the most when we give Him our hearts. 
    • Session 4 – Jesus, The Purifier (Luke 11:37-41) | The Pharisees were obsessed with using outward expressions of purity to make everyone think they were righteous, but their hearts were far from it. Similarly, we can focus solely on our outward appearance while our hearts are filthy with hidden sin. Our hearts dictate our actions, so we have to purify them first. And the only way we can purify our hearts is by giving them to Jesus.
