Revelation 3:20: Dining With God

Da Vinci: The Last Supper

Revelation 3:20: Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.

We often see the Book of Revelation as a bizarre, apocryphal tale that we cannot understand without commentary.  Sadly, we decide that it is too symbolic and too strange to have much impact on our lives.

In the penultimate verse of the Book of Revelation, we hear the words; Yes, I am coming soon.  Regretfully, we decide that since we have not seen Jesus in the last half hour in a form we recognize then these words have little to do with our lives.

We flip through the last pages of the Bible, deciding that the events happened too long ago to matter and we close the door to Scripture before we even look at the Book of Revelation.  Disappointedly, we look elsewhere for hope; we go elsewhere for joy; we search other faces for love. And yet . . . Behold, God stands at the door and knocks.

Let us spend some time this week-end discerning God’s presence in our lives.  And let us decide to dine with God tonight.
