Knock, Knock

Revelation 3:20 (NLT) – Look!  I stand at the door and knock.  If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.

Read today’s verse as though Jesus is speaking to you.  Imagine the scene with me.

What does the door look like?  Is it nicely decorated and well used or is the paint peeling and the doorframe vine covered?  Who and what is on the other side? 

Can you hear the knocking?  Is it gentle or urgent?  What thoughts and feelings come to the surface at the prospect of Jesus’ visit? 

Will you open the door or pretend you’re not home? (click to tweet)

Jesus will never force himself into your life.  He always waits to be welcomed inside with both patience and persistence.  When and how often will you share a meal with this special Friend?

Are you unable to participate in a Bible study group?  Would you like to join me in online Bible discussion this fall?  Click for more info.

Do you dare read a few verses before and after today’s scripture?  There’s a harsh warning about being lukewarm Christians.
