Proverbs 9:5 (Mini Sermon)Submitted by Pastor Chad Wagner on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
5. Pro 9:5 - "Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled." A. Come, i. Wisdom calls out to the simple who are humble enough to realize and accept that they are simple and lack understanding (Pro 9:4) and invites them to come and dine with her. a. Come v. - 1. In its most literal sense it expresses the hitherward motion of a voluntary agent. a. To move towards, approach. b. esp. To reach by moving towards; hence, often merely, To arrive, present oneself. b. Jesus Christ, who is the wisdom of God (1Co 1:24), after His resurrection invited His disciples to "come and dine" with Him (Joh 21:12). c. The gospel message to God's children is to come and partake of God's provision (Isa 55:1-3; Mat 11:28; Rev 22:17). d. Those who hear and obey wisdom's call to come unto her are blessed. e. The wicked will not come unto God (Joh 5:40; Psa 10:4). B. eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled. i. Wisdom building her house, furnishing her table, and sending out her maidens to call men to come into it is symbolic of Jesus Christ building His church, establishing its ordinances, and sending out his apostles and preachers to cry unto His children to come into His church (Pro 9:1-4). ii. One of the ordinances that Jesus Christ, who is the wisdom of God (1Co 1:24), instituted in His church is the Lord's Supper which consists of bread and wine (Luk 22:17-20). iii. Jesus bids His ministers to preach unto men to "come" to the great supper in His kingdom (Luk 14:15-17). a. Our Saviour after His resurrection invited His disciples to "come and dine" with Him (Joh 21:12). b. Wisdom exhorts us likewise. iv. How blessed we are to be welcome in God's house to eat at His table.
