“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). On the first Sunday of the month many churches come together to commune in the Lord’s Supper. This supper, however, is no ordinary meal. It does not consists of 4 main courses with 3 sides and 3 desserts. This meal is a meal of remembrance to commemorate the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. The main course is His body and His blood which He shed for the remission of sins on Calvary for the whole world. This supper is a time for those who have accepted Jesus as Savior to come together and dine with Him.
Do you know you are also invited to eat with Jesus? He promised long ago in His Word that all can eat with Him if they only do one thing. That one thing is to invite Him into your heart by faith and receive Him as your Savior. Just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that God has raised Him from the dead, and you shall be saved, and be privileged to eat with Jesus not only in this world but the world to come.
In His Word He also reminds us that He’s standing right now at the door of your heart patiently waiting for you to hear His voice, open the door, and let Him in. It is as simple as that! Being saved is the only criteria that makes it possible to join in this beautiful feast of remembrance, the Lord’s Supper. Why not accept Him today and come on in and eat and commune together with Him! Then and only then will you come to know what a wonderful time of rejoicing it is to dine with Jesus!
“Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “‘Take, eat; this is my body.”‘ And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “‘Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness for sins” (Matthew 26: 26-28).
I will keep on thanking God for a wonderful meal of remembrance and the privilege to participate with Him. Dear Lord, thank you for inviting the whole world to eat with you. Thank you for setting the table, making it possible through your shed blood, for all to commune with you who has accepted you as their Savior, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com.
May the blessings of the Lord be with you today.
