Unexpected Guests

In truth,
In Christ's heart,
     beating in your chest,
There are no unexpected guests
     come knocking at your front door,
          no surprise company at your table;
You surely are not an unexpected
     or a surprise visitor at God's home.
He's always at the ready
     to welcome us when we knock,
          to feed us from His great store,
               to give us drink from His river.
Should we not as well
     always be so prepared,
          as if it were God himself
               come to visit late at night?

Psalm 36:7-9
Matthew 25:34
