Being invited around to a new friend’s home for dinner is an exciting event. It signals the start of the ‘getting to know you better’ part of the friendship/relationship. It’s a time where the walls between personal and professional break down as you are invited ‘behind the scenes’ of your friend’s life. We often forget though that this invitation is exactly what Jesus extends to us every day. This illustration explores the idea that there is always a place for us at the table of the cross and that God wants to get to know us better.
