Come and Dine

The Dinner Bell Calls You

In one of the hymnals at church there is a song titled, " Come and Dine".
The first verse goes like this:
"Jesus has the table spread, where the saints of God are fed,
He invites His chosen people come and dine.
There we have our hearts desire, bread and fish upon the fire.
To the hungry calleth now come and dine."

Just picture a large banquet table spread with every kind of food that could
ever be thought about, food to satisfy any appetite.  The finest cuts of
meats and seafood, salads and fresh cooked vegetables, the most fancy  
desserts you could dream of and an array of drinks to satisfy your thirst.
Imagine that this table is spread all the time and anytime you are hungry
you can go in and just help yourself.

That is exactly what God has for us in the Spiritual realm.  He has a table
spread and He calls us to come and dine.  He is waiting for us to stop by
and feast for awhile.  His banquet table is spread with so many good things.
There is peace and rest for those who are burdened, joy for the sorrowful,
hope for those who have given up on everything in life.  There is healing
for the sick, and comfort for the lonely and depressed.  There is victory for
those who are battling temptations.

Only God could a spread table like this, because He is aware of what we
hunger for even when we don't know what we need.  It is good to know that we
can come anytime and feast, even at the midnight hour.  When we have feasted
at God's table we will always leave feeling full of His goodness and mercy
and grace.  Psalm 34:8 says, " O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed
is he that trusts in Him."

If you have not accepted Jesus as Savior, He offers salvation to you; His
arms are outstretched and He invites you to "come and dine."  When you
accept this invitation, you can come freely to feast at His table anytime.


"Come--- ---Dine"

What Is Beauty?

“What is Beauty?” I asked myself.

Is it short, or is it tall?

Is it curly hair, or straight hair

or perhaps no hair at all?


Is it red, brown, yellow, black or white,

twinkling brown eyes,

or blue eyes bright?


Is it plump or is it thin?

Is it smooth and flawless skin?


I surmise that all these things

In beauty play a part,


the real truth in beauty is

the “hidden man of the heart.”

1 Peter 3:3-5)
