The Invitation

God invites us into communion with Him. Jesus spoke these words, “Come to Me all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation].” (Matthew 11:28 AMP) 

When we accept this invitation and get to know Him, we experience His love, grace, and goodness. Our lives are transformed into His image. (II Corinthians 3:12-18) 

As we are washed with this great Love, fully expressed in Jesus the Son, we cry out, “My Savior and My Lord.” Our aspiration to live in the declaration that Jesus is Lord cannot be realized unless we encounter and know the Holy Trinity. So, the invitation is before us. Hear the Lord saying, “Come to Me!” 

For Reflection

  • Ponder the painting of the door: What is seen and unseen in this invitation?
  • How will you come into His divine presence for transformation?

From the Artist:
The Invitation suggests that everyone is invited into God’s presence. God wanted me to know that in Him love and acceptance are abundant beyond what I can ask or imagine.” ~ Brenda Blank
