The Table – Jesus knocks

Have you noticed from the gospels that Jesus likes to be around people and share a meal with them? There is something sociable and delightful, having a couple of friends – laughing and eating together.

Read Revelation 3:20 (

What an invite! Jesus wants to get to know you. He wants to sit with you. He wants to do life with you.
Why would we want to do life without Him? Why not open the door (to your heart) and let Him in. Spend time with Him. Talk to Him.

God is knocking.
Do you hear it?



“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” Colossians 2:6-7.

Do you have a relationship with Jesus, a daily walk and talk with Jesus like you do with some of your best friends? Being completely open and honest with Jesus about all your thoughts and dreams?

It’s so important that we learn to go deeper with Him. That we learn to figure ourselves out in Him. We will be so liberated by how gentle He is about all our experiences.



Have you ever felt unwanted? Left till last when choosing teams, uninvited to a party? Life can be cruel and make us feel worthless and unwanted.

Mephibosheth felt just like that, describing himself as a dead dog (
But David said to him ‘I want you to eat with me every day’. He was somebody David wanted to be with, showing he was valued.

God says the same to you. He desires relationship with you, He wants to spend time with you. You are wanted by the greatest One in the universe.

Hold your head up high and take advantage of that amazing opportunity.



The dictionary definition of ‘relationship’: “The way in which two or more people, or things are connected.”

Could you imagine a world without relationship? What would that even look like?

The very thought of not being connected to friends, family, and just people in general makes me nervous – sjoe, can’t imagine that hey! Never mind people – could you imagine not being connected to the one who created you and loves you the most in the world.

Connection to God our Father was lost in the Garden because of sin. The cross is what reconnects us. We now live, where nothing could separate us from Love and being in relationship with our heavenly Father – because of the cross.
