20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
I’m pairing this delicious dish of Truth–
with the example of the Two Sisters who were expecting the Master for dinner.
“Six days before the Passover began, Jesus went back to Bethany, the town where he raised Lazarus from the dead. They had prepared a supper for Jesus. Martha served, and Lazarus and Mary were among those at the table.”
John 12:1-2 TPT
Imagine the most important person on earth is coming to your house–
Especially now, lol, when most people only have a jar of peanut butter and ketchup.
(That’s a joke)
The Holy Spirit has went before us as He said He would and for those of us listening, we are well equipped.
Whether your fridge is full or bare, One thing is for certain,
He’s standing at your door.
As I answer it today,
First of all,
I’m humbled and quite Thankful that The King of Glory,
Chose my house.
Notice that Jesus returned to their home.
What an honor.
I’m Thankful that He’s also chosen mine.
I was actually going to take my Thanksgiving decor down today…
That’s right, it’s not Christmas lights trimming my dining area, but rather the Thanksgiving attire.
Fall colors and all.
I need to be reminded daily that I have Everything to be Thankful for,
and that, requires a Daily Thanks,
Not just on one day out of a year–
I tell myself.
So as He enters, I hope He sees that as His Welcome.
That I do count my blessings.
Would I Martha-it- up and start running around to entertain Him?
“Let me get you this, Let me get you that.”
Proving my love and appreciation.
would I be like Mary and realize that He had So much more to offer me, than what I have to offer Him?
Would I just sit at His feet?
Feasting on His every Word?
Would I get up and get us both coffee?
What would this meal of ours look like?
I don’t know that I could focus on the Food either.
Mary was complimented by Jesus in the dish
I believe Jesus is the same with us today.
Our presence in His Presence is what His heart longs for.
Most days I do pour Him a coffee.
I started doing that, as I felt He led me to sow that First cup for the way to Freedom from the addiction of it.
But there are mornings that I pour His cup,
Read His Word,
And yet still feel disengaged.
Could it be that I’m trying to please Him by doing something for Him, instead of with Him?
I know I have shared this before, but it’s coming up again…
Jesus loves them both,
But I believe the one realized it more than the other.
God, Help me choose the right thing in your Presence.
Let my heart long for seconds….
