Sunday Devotional

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, [then] I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.”

-Revelation 3:20

Jesus knocks

See the picture above?

It’s Jesus Christ our Lord knocking on your door.

Notice anything unusual about the door?

It has no door handle on the outside. The door handle is on the inside.

That means YOU must choose to open the door and let Him in.

When He created you, along with life, He gave you another entirely gratuitous gift — that of Free Will, including the free choice NOT to believe in Him.

Imagine that.

How much must He respect and love you to do that.

He wants us to come to Him and to love Him, of our own free volition.

For love is not love, unless it is freely given. What good is a love that is coerced?

Won’t you turn that door knob and let Him in?

I’ll be right back. I have to answer the door. 🙂

Thank you Dr. E., this has always been one of my favorite scriptures. How anyone could turn Jesus away is beyond me……after what He did for us, and all He wants in return is for us to love Him and walk with Him.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most beautiful post. And know this: after you open the door, Love and Mercy itself, Jesus, enters into your entire being. May God bless you, the Blessed Mother Mary take care of you, and the saints and angels assist you!

Beautiful! Brief but powerful. I often think of that exact verse when mulling over how to “convince” relatives that it’s not about multiple “churches,” but it’s about ONE PERSON (the Lord Jesus Christ). You did such a good job I’d like to make a “Bible Tract” out of it! 😉

I did that, turned the handle and welcome Him in, some 40+ years ago, and have never regretted that decision.
