A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
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 will sup with him, and he with me.
Who is it that stands at the door and knocks?It is Jesus that desires to enter in your life and have a deep meanful relationship with you.Jesus stands and knocks using different methods in a person’s life to cause a sinner’s heart to repent and turn to Him.The key to opening the door is “to hear His voice.”This is giving attention to what He is saying and opening the door our heart.He doesn’t knock then runs away He promises to enter and “sup” with him (or her) He with them.Jesus wants to be our Savior and our Friend.Has He knocked on your door – Have you invited Him to come and stay?
Do you want to be happy? Cling to Christ and live a life of faith in Him. Remain in Him and live close to Him. Follow Him with heart and soul and mind and strength, and seek to know Him better every day. By doing so, you will have great peace while you pass through the "temporary things," and in the midst of a dying world you "will never die!" (John 11:26) By doing so you will be able to look forward to "eternal things" with unfailing confidence, and to feel and "know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in Heaven, not built by human hands!" (2 Corinthians 5:1)
God forgives all our sins—and He forgives freely, fully and forever!
