Revelation 3:20 HCSB “Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me.”
What an invitation!😃 Who would turn down having dinner with Jesus? When we hear His voice do we open the door?
John 6:51-58 HCSB “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread he will live forever. The bread that I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.” At that, the Jews argued among themselves, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat? ” So Jesus said to them, “I assure you: Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. Anyone who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day, because My flesh is real food and My blood is real drink. The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood lives in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the manna your fathers ate — and they died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.””
Are we feeding on Jesus? Are we chewing on and digesting His words? (John 15:7) Are we drinking His blood; receiving it, for the forgiveness of sins? Or are we trying to achieve righteousness on our own, through our works? (1 John 1:7-9) Jesus is the real bread from heaven. Feeding on Him and drinking His blood means eternal life! Some of us dine with Jesus every day. How blessed you are!😃
Luke 12:37 CEB “Happy are those servants whom the master finds waiting up when he arrives. I assure you that, when he arrives, he will dress himself to serve, seat them at the table as honored guests, and wait on them.”
Revelation 19:6-9 CEB “And I heard something that sounded like a huge crowd, like rushing water and powerful thunder. They said, “Hallelujah! The Lord our God, the Almighty, exercised his royal power! Let us rejoice and celebrate, and give him the glory, for the wedding day of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. She was given fine, pure white linen to wear, for the fine linen is the saints’ acts of justice.” Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Favored are those who have been invited to the wedding banquet of the Lamb.” He said to me, “These are the true words of God.””
Do you see what dining with Jesus now will ultimately lead to?😃 Dining with Him forever!😂

A few years ago I was riding on the back of a train exactly like this one. It was winter time and I was rolling through Utah and I was what we call “gearless and fearless” meaning I did not have the proper camping gear, no sleeping bag or blanket, no pack, just the clothes on my back. It was well below freezing and my feet felt like they were blocks of ice and I was truly freezing my friends. The train slowed as we were rolling through some town and I prayed to God “please stop this train so I can get some gear”. That train stopped literally 3-5 minutes after that. I got off and I was directly behind a building that said “Klymit” and I could see it was a big store that manufactured and sold backpacking gear. The store was closed so I looked into the dumpster behind the store and my eyes could not believe what I saw. Inside that dumpster were many high quality sleeping bags and sleeping pads, MANY to choose from. They must have been defects or returns. Down sleeping bags, the good ones. It makes me tear up because I know the Lord provided for me that day, and I have many more stories similar to this. I left there with 2 sleeping bags and 2 sleeping pads, because I knew I would find another homeless person to give to… I’m sharing this because I know it’s true that if you believe what God says in Mathew Chapter 6 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value then they? Yes it is good to be prepared and to stock up on supplies, but always remember that God will provide, his words are true, you just have to believe it.
