Have you seen that photo of Jesus Christ standing on a doorstep and knocking on the door? I seem to be seeing a lot of it lately. Every time I do, it calls me to contemplate the longing of Jesus to come into our lives and create an intimate communion with us. While I have been privately reflecting on this matter for some time now, a post I read today titled, “Jesus At The Door” made me decide to share my thoughts.
It is so inspiring to know that the God of the universe who so selflessly came down to Earth to be crucified, just to save all of us from the bondage of sin, is still knocking at our hearts’ door. He is offering us an invitation to salvation–pleading for us to let him into our lives. So are you ready to let Jesus in?
“Behold, I stand at the door and Knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and dine with him, and he with me.” Revelations 3:20
Remember that Jesus is always knocking at the door of our hearts, waiting for our response. He is there to offer us the priceless gift of life eternal, but in exchange we must throw away all the worthless, dangerous toys of this world.
I will ask you again, are you ready to let Jesus in?
