Anybody Home?

When we go visiting people, we walk up to the door and knock. Then we say anybody home? Visiting folks is a southern tradition in the US. We call it hospitality. We gather around the kitchen table and drink coffee and talk about the day or our children. My mom had a 3 cup porcelain coffee pot. She would put 2 scoops of dark roast coffee in the coffee pot. The coffee was darker than espresso. She served it demitasse. After leaving home, I could never drink coffee as strong as that. She would make several pots of coffee and people would drink it. This fellowship is a way of life. Jesus said the same thing over 2000 years ago. In Revelation 3:20 ” 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.” This is the fellowship God has wanted from the beginning. This is the reason that God made man. Image that God wants to have supper with us. I miss those times with my parents, family and friends around the kitchen table. It is the fellowship that bonds us together. And the more time that you spend in God’s presence, the greater the bond grows. Is Anyone Home?
