DAILY READINGS: Gen. 45; Psalms 23:1-24:10; Matt. 26:1-30

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 

The spiritually lukewarm church had put the Lord outside. How very much like the religious system in our world today. Yet, the Lord stands and knocks on the door of the individual’s heart. He calls with His voice, speaking gracious words to gain entrance. When the heart’s door is opened, He comes in as a guest saying, “I…will eat with him.” Soon, this guest becomes the host, “and he with me.” Are you feasting with Him? —Rex Trogdon

What food luxurious loads the board, When, at His table, sits the
Lord! The wine how rich, the bread how sweet, When Jesus deigns
the guests to meet. —C. H. Spurgeon
