The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 1:14

True! The Word became flesh! But making a dwelling among us is not something He forces on us. It is true only if we allow Him to dwell among us - within us! Otherwise He stands at the door knocking!

In Revelation 3:20 we read, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."

If you think about it, we only live with the people we love, eat with the people we are friends with, not just any strangers. Dining together is an intimate experience where we are no longer at guard but relaxed, where our true self is revealed, where we have open conversations forgetting about our backgrounds & social differences and where we come together to connect better.

What a privilege it is to have our Lord Jesus Christ dwell in us, dining with us! How wonderful it is to experience Him so close, at an arm's distance, sharing the same meal with us, taking in conversations on our mundane activties, joking with us, laughing with us, reading our minds, reassuring us it is all for just a little while... All we have done (or for some, yet to do) is open our hearts!

When we open our hearts, the Word that became flesh will dwell among us! Amen!

    Amen! Amen! I think that's one of my favorite lines from, Francesca Battistelli's song, 'Be Born In Me':

    "I am not brave I'll never be. The only thing my heart can offer is a vacancy..."
