We all start on the outside …

The outside looking in,

This is where grace begins.


We were hungry, we were thirsty …

With nothing left to give,

Oh the shape that we were in.


And Just when all hope seemed lost,

Love opened the door for us.

He said come to the table …

Come join the sinners who have been redeemed.


Take your place beside the Savior,

Sit down and be set free,

Come to the table.


Come meet this motley crew of misfits …

These liars and these thieves,

There's no one unwelcome here.


So that sin and shame that you brought with you,

You can leave it at the door,

And let mercy draw you near.


Just come to the table …

Come join the sinners, you have been redeemed.

Take your place beside the Savior …

Sit down and be set free,

Come to the table.


… come to the table.

To the thief, to the doubter;

To the hero and the coward;

To the prisoner and the soldier;

To the young and to the older.


All who hunger, all who thirst;

All the last, all the first;

All the paupers and the princes;

All who fail you've been forgiven.


All who dream, all who suffer;

All who loved and lost another;

All the chained, all the free.


All who follow, all who lead.

Anyone who's been let down.

All the lost you have been found.

All who've been labeled right or wrong.


Everyone who hears this song …….

Come, come to the table ….

come join the sinners you have been redeemed.


Take your place beside the Savior

…. sit down and be set free

…. Oooo …. sit down and be set free

Come to the table

Come to the table.


Sit down and be set free …. Come to the table.

1 Corinthians 10: 1-24

14  Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.

15  I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say.

16  Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?

17  Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.

18  Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar?

19  Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything?

20  No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.

21  You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

22  Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he?


Psalm 23:5   You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflow


Matthew 26:20-21  Now when evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the twelve disciples.


Luke 22:27  "For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.


Matthew 21:12  And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.



The Old Prophet and the Man of God

…19 but the man of God went back with him, ate bread in his house, and drank water. 20 While they were sitting at the table, the word of the LORD came to the prophet who had brought him back, 21 and the prophet cried out to the man of God who had come from Judah, “This is what the LORD says: ‘Because you have defied the word of the LORD and have not kept the commandment that the LORD your God gave you,…


The Table Is:

A place of nourishment

A place of conversation

A place of meeting

A place to be fed

A place of rest

A place for the family

A place to join with the family

A place on which to set the Word of God

A place to share

A place of learning
