Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
Revelation 3:20, NKJV
Having someone over for dinner is a great way to become better acquainted. We eat with those who are closest to us—family members and friends whose company we appreciate and whose fellowship we cherish. In the first century, wealthy Laodicean Christians were likely to have hosted many such dinner parties.
While this verse is often misunderstood as being directed to unbelievers, Jesus is truthfully telling individuals who are already Christians that He is free for dinner. While Jesus will not barge into our dining rooms, He is already on our doorstep, knocking and waiting patiently for us to invite Him in so we can spend time together. Did you hear that sound? Someone is at the door.
