Hear these words from Revelation 3:20
“‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.'”
(Revised Standard Version)
Observe the window
Has Jesus ever knocked on the door of your heart? Did you hesitate to open the door or did you freely receive him? What happens when we allow Christ to have free reign in our hearts?
Take a few minutes to be silent
Allow God to speak to you. When you are ready, speak with him. What things are you harboring in your heart that you want to confess before Christ as he comes to live within you? Ask for his forgiveness. Ask him to make your heart a place where he would always be welcome.
Even when we have received you at an earlier time in our life, O Christ, we are always in need of renewal. I know that you are coming again to me, beckoning me to open the door of my heart to you again. You are the only one who can give my life peace and meaning. I know that, and yet I fill my life with so many other things. Forgive me when I have worshipped other idols and failed to worship and serve you. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. Amen.
God gently calls us every day,
Why should we then our bliss delay?
Thou, Lord, e’en now art calling me;
I will leave all and follow Thee.
