What If God Came Over For Dinner?

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

That’s a random thought isn’t it?

The thought that God, in allllllll His Glory and Perfection might actually show up at your front door as a Houseguest.

And if He did, have you ever thought what might you serve Him?

The Most High, sitting in your home, looking at all of the things you’ve accumulated… not even there to judge you.

But you, you are aware that this Person sitting in your midst is the reason why you get up everyday. He may have saved you from something, protected you, comforted you, counseled you… chastened you.

Up until now, He’s only been the Bible and a prayer. But now… there He is, in your Home, as a Houseguest.

What could you offer Him?

It’s obvious this hit me kind of hard because it actually made me cry as I looked around and realized…I had nothing that was good enough.

And the more I thought about it, the more it hurt that with everything God had promised me, and mankind, with a whole New World and everything in it… I couldn’t think of anything that may please Him.

And I told God that I would just give Him all of my favorite things. I’d buy as much as cranberry grape juice as I could afford lol (my favorite juice), avocado oil, all of my stickers and washi tapes because that’s really all I have right now.

I also offered up a blanket that I’m currently crocheting and have been working on for the last 3 years.

I’ve given up a lot in this past year, but I’d give up everything else if Almighty Ahayah were to visit me now and be sitting here with me…

I dunno, the thought of that just really did something to me…

Just really made me realize even further on just how unworthy I truly am of God and all His Righteousness….

I don’t deserve Him… 😔

Not even in the slightest…

So I’m glad, I’m eternally grateful, that He found favour in me and so many others across the world.

And the reality is lol, God is ALWAYS over for dinner… breakfast, lunch, snack time, cheat days… 🤣.

He’s always around! But I guess it just kinda hit a little harder to personify it… it’s like what if Yashayah (Jesus Christ), came knocking on my door… what would I offer Him?

In reality, I suppose we offer God our time, our intimacy, our devotion.

Lol I don’t know why this hit me the way it did…. so but anyways!

Love you. Mean it!
