What can I bring?

What can I bring?

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 

Have you ever been invited somewhere and asked, “What can I bring?” only to hear, “Nothing” or “Just bring yourself” as the response? What a relief to not have to make, bake, pack or pick up anything and just know you can simply show up and be welcomed in…just are you, even with empty hands. 

Jesus does this for us, too. Every minute of every day. And His invitation is infinitely better. 

Because we’re always invited, we never have to bring anything, and we can always come exactly as we are - broken and empty-handed. The table is always set, a banquet is always prepared, and a seat is always waiting for his “honored guest” ...us. (Psalm 23:5) He has the bread of life and refreshing waters to feed our hungry souls and in His presence we find the fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11). But wait, there’s more. To top it all off, he never gets tired of us, embraces us with open arms every time, and calls us “beloved” and “friend”. 

Prayer: 

Lord, thank you that the table is always set for us. We thank you that regardless of what our day has looked like, you welcome us in as your honored guest, even when we show up empty-handed and broken. Thank you that we don’t have to remember to RSVP or prepare an elaborate speech. You ask for nothing. Remind us today that you’re always standing at the door knocking ready for us to simply open it. When the world gets noisy today, tune our hearts to your voice and remind us of the fullness of joy that we have in Your presence. Help us remember that the greatest invitation we’ll ever receive is the one You give us every minute of every day - to simply be with You.
