It was a beautiful day in Haiti, to see the sunshine and be out among some of the people. Being Sunday, the highlight of the day was to worship in a church in downtown Cap-Haitien, where the pastor's wife is one of the outstanding students at EBS. The exuberant worship lasted for over an hour. It was my privilege to preach the Word in the service, translated into Creole by my friend and brother, Matt Ayars (also president of EBS). I shared today from 1 Corinthians 11 and the question of "Which Table?" we seek in this world.
"What is the 'big table' that I seek after in my life --- the place, position, or relationships where I think I will feel like I am someone, accepted, and important?" Jesus came from the highest place to the lowest in order to be everything we need right where we are. Will I accept that I have been seated in Him, and have been provided a seat at HIS table forever? Will I also allow Him to live through me at the "small tables" of our world? I was blessed and amazed by the work of the Holy Spirit through Matt as he translated the truth into the culture in such a vivid and dynamic way.
