You Can Sit With Us

Title: You Can Sit With Us
Artwork by: YMI X @rc.sketch
Description: Eating together at one table is a sign of common bond.

There are two sides to it, though. You could be part of the inner circle, with a seat reserved just for you. Or you could be outside looking in, wondering if there’s room for you somewhere.

Just like in the movie Mean Girls where the popular clique claims “You can’t sit with us!” to those considered beneath them, the world reserves seats only for those who have something to offer—wealth, power, status, beauty, fame…

Meanwhile, Jesus embraced the lowest of the low of society at that time: widows (Luke 7:11-17), lepers (Luke 17:11-19), women who lived adulterous lives (Luke 7:36-50, John 8:1-11), even “tax collectors and sinners” (Luke 5:29-39).

There is something common between us and them: we are all in need of God’s grace. His love unites us regardless of our circumstances, and welcomes us all into fellowship with Him. And so, no matter where you are in life, He wants to invite you to His table too.

This International Women’s Day, come celebrate this invitation of His, and extend it to the women in your life who need to know that they, too, can sit with Him.
