Receiving the Lord

In Revelation 3:20 is a beautiful picture of someone who receives the Lord.

It says that the Lord stands the door of our heart and knocks, and if we hear his voice and open the door, He will come in and have dinner with us, and us with him. 

The concept of fellowship is having dinner at the table. Dinner time is when people sit around the table and enjoy each other’s company. That is a picture that is drawn for us.

That is what fellowship is all about. It is about enjoying each others company. It is not about a law that says that you have to meet these requirements in order to be acceptable. It’s about being accepted and accepting the grace of God, and enjoying each others company.

Jesus paid the price, so that we can have fellowship with Him. So we can have eternal life. We don’t need to try to attain what we already have.

When a person accepts Christ, they become family.
