Invite God In!

English and Español

Three visitors approached Abraham’s tent. They looked like men, but something in their appearance alerted Abraham that they were supernatural beings. Abraham respectfully bowed low to the ground. He called one of them Lord, which suggests that he spoke to God himself. The angel talked with Abraham and Sarah about the birth of Isaac and his pending judgment of Sodom and Gomorra. (Genesis 18) God had lifted the curtain that separated the spiritual and earthly realms and allowed Abraham to glimpse the grandeur, resolute justice, and love of God. God invited Abraham to be part of His Life—he wanted Abraham to know him and to have a close relationship with him. The angels walked alongside him, and he wanted Abraham and indeed all believers to get in step with him as he worked within his creation. Abraham reverently received his guests. We too wait expectantly for God to come to our door. Do you have ears to hear? Is he approaching your tent? If so, bow low to the ground and invite him to dinner and to talk with you. Come in, Lord Jesus! Tell us about yourself and your work here and now. Come, be part of my life, Lord Jesus. Amen

¡Invita a Dios a entrar!

Tres visitantes se acercaron a la carpa de Abraham. Parecían hombres, pero algo de su aspecto alertó a Abraham que eran seres sobrenaturales. Abraham se inclinó hasta el suelo en respeto. Llamó a uno de ellos “Señor”, lo que sugiere que habló a Dios mismo. El ángel habló con Abraham y Sara acerca del nacimiento de Isaac y la sentencia pendiente de Sodoma y Gomorra (Génesis 18). Dios había levantado la cortina que separaba el reino espiritual del reino terrenal, y permitió que Abraham vislumbrara la grandeza, la justicia firme y el amor de Dios. Dios invitó a Abraham a ser parte de su vida—quería que Abraham lo conociera y tuviera una relación íntima con él. Los ángeles acompañaron a Dios caminando, y Dios quería que Abraham y por cierto todos los creyentes caminaran paso a paso con él mientras trabajaba dentro de su creación. Abraham recibió a sus huéspedes en reverencia. Nosotros también esperamos con ansia que Dios entre por nuestra puerta. ¿Tienes oídos para oír? ¿Está Dios acercándose a tu carpa? Si es así, inclínate hacía el suelo e invítalo a cenar y hablar contigo. ¡Entra, Señor Jesús! Dinos acerca de tú mismo y tu trabajo aquí y ahora. Ven, sé parte de mi vida Señor Jesús. Amen

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

(Isaiah 40: 31)
