Have you ever listened to a podcast or a sermon and it literally ignited your soul? The words spoken are so good and so encouraging – that you almost feel that person is speaking directly to you? And it is in that moment, that you feel your soul ignited to go do something.
It’s 2020! A New Year! A New decade. People are posting every which way on their new goals, new hoping selves, new weight loss, etc. etc. But instead of a new _______. What about just igniting what you are already doing? Taking what you have and giving it what my friend Danielle Strickland says is a “boost”.
I was recently listening to the podcast “Open Table – Son a preacher man by Jonathan Martin”. It is soooooooo good. If you get sec / listen to it. But I caught myself talking back to the podcast. Now side note, I do talk to myself (and answer myself) quite often. I know I’m not the only one out there who does this. Anyways, listening to it…I felt ignited. My soul was rising up. Ready for action. Jonathan Martin talks about in this podcast that ALL should be invited to the Lords table. “The Lords table should be not a table of division but a table of unity. If you are humble & hungry, then you should come to table.” And it made me think of my own table in my house. If you know me, I LOVE to cook & eat with people at my table. I always feel honored in doing it. But am I striving enough to invite ALL to my table? Am I striving for unity at my table? Or unity in the table of life? My boost this year is for that – to invite ALL to the table. BTW – I love how J Martin closes his podcast by talking on how at the last supper Jesus had WELCOMED both Judas & Peter to the table. One had already denied him & another was about to. And he already knew all this when he welcomed them to the table. (Whoa. 🎤 drop)
