October 21 – A Love Feast
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.
See, My children, the knocking rests upon no merit of yours — though it is in response to the longing of your heart for Me.
Keep, keep that listening ear. “If any man will hear My Voice.” Again no merit of yours. Only the ear bent to catch My tones, and to hear the sound of My gentle knocking.
Then listen: “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.”
What a feast! You think it would have been Joy to have been present at the Marriage Feast of Cana of Galilee, or to have been one of My disciples in the Upper Room, seated with Me at the Last Supper or one of the two at Emmaus, or one of the few for whom I prepared that Lakeside feast!
But oh! at each of these feasts, God-provided and God-championed as they were, you could not have known the rapture you may know as you hear the knocking and the Voice, and, opening, bid Me welcome to My Feast.
A Feast of tenderest companionship, of Divine Sustenance, truly a Love Feast.
Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live.
