"If you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there... First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift."
I love the imagery of a meal to signify forgiveness and restored fellowship. In Revelation 3:20 Jesus calls for an end to the hostility that sin has caused between Him and us: “if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
Whatever is causing you to stand hurting and starving on the other side of that door, fling it wide, and fall into the Savior’s forgiving arms. He’s waiting for you right now!
SIN CREATES A GREAT DIVIDING HUNGER IN OUR SOULS, BUT REPENTANCE WITH FORGIVENESS IS THE FOOD OF PEACE.
