This is a picture of God’s table. There’s always room for one more. “The Lord . . . is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9, NKJV). There is plenty of room in God’s family for any and all.
When you pray for God’s kingdom to come on earth, you’re asking for God’s rule to extend to those who are not yet Christians. You’re praying for unsaved people to become Christians and join us at God’s table. God wants to answer this prayer more than anything because there’s always room for one more. Why does God make more room at His table? Because He loves people and loves to feed them.”
“God has a refrigerator filled with lots of good things to eat. The food is not only good tasting, but it is also good for you. When you eat the Bread of Life, you will grow and become strong—and there’s always more if you’re still hungry. You don’t have to sop the serving dishes, because God has more food for you than you can possibly eat and if you go away hungry, it’s your own fault.
Pray, “Thy kingdom come,” into the life of family and friends who are not saved. Yes, you don’t want them to go to hell; that’s proper motivation to pray. And yes, you don’t want them to continue hurting themselves with sinful, selfish lives. But even more: Remember the good and soul-filling times you’ve had at God’s table. Pray that God’s kingdom would come into their lives because you want them to enjoy the same good things and be satisfied.”
