In-N-Out Stockton & Rev 3:20

So for the uninitiated, In-N-Out Burger is a necessary part of any roadtrip to/through SoCal. What's so special about In-N-Out you ask? Well, the burgers are good, everything is fresh, service is simple & fast. And there's this sort-of mystique to the place. It's a fast food joint that's almost ALWAYS busy. And not because of any menu gimmicks (no seasonal McPanini or McFiletMignanon with a Sponge Bob action figure, will you find here). Yet even with menu choices that haven't changed in years, the place is popular.

Also unique (and a favorite of mine): the bible verses printed on all the cups and wrappers. Tonight Molly's burger came wrapped in Rev 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me." Good to remember Jesus wants to eat/fellowship with us, maybe even over something as simple as a burger at In-N-Out :-) Cassie told us one of the things she's most looking forward to in heaven is eating the food! At first blush this might seem like an odd priority, considering the wonders of worship that await those who've put our faith in Jesus. Then again, the marriage supper of the lamb is one of the first things on Jesus' agenda, too. Like He told the twelve: I'll wait to drink the fruit of the vine until we do it together in My Father's kingdom. Isaiah 25:6-9. Come Lord Jesus! Pray that on this trip we'll take Jesus up on His offer in Rev 3:20. Listen for His knock, open up to Him, and enjoy the fellowship that satisfies our souls.
