John 8:56

I Will Sup With Him

I Will Sup With Him

And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said. And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat. Genesis 18:1–8)

There is no greater meal, than one that is prepared in love. Many a meal has been prepared in love. It always brings joy to our heart to share a meal with someone for whom we care. It may not necessarily be one that you have prepared yourself, perhaps you may have taken that special someone to a special restaurant. We do these things to show this loved one how much we appreciate them. Jesus said, Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.” (John 8:56) This should be the desire of our heart, to share special times with our Lord Jesus Christ. It truly indeed was a privilege for Abraham to spend those precious moments with his Lord.  Jesus desires to spend precious moments with us too. “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.” (Revelation 3:20)
