2 Samuel chapter 9, tells the story of King David and Mephibosheth, the son of his good friend, Jonathan, the son of King Saul.
The story sets out this marvellous scene of salvation, where the King takes pity on Mephibosheth, who was crippled since birth, and called him to higher ground — that of eating at the King’s table.
Mephibosheth understood that he would be of no value to the King, but he humbly accepted the offer and ate there in the presence of the King until his death.
Humankind is called to eat at the King’s table….King Jesus. Revelation 3:20, states, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
King Jesus is always calling us to accept the offer, but some are too crippled in their ears to hear His voice; too crippled in their hearts to feel the need for a better life; too crippled in their minds to comprehend the freedoms within the calling. Removing the barriers to a better life and accepting the call of the King, is the greatest decision we will make in this life.
If you haven’t made it yet, or feel you need to remake that decision, do it.
