Answer The Door

By Anita Mondragon

Below is the promise I drew for today.  I have heard this particular scripture used in witnessing to the lost in an effort to bring them to Salvation.  It is used perfectly in context…for it IS Jesus asking to enter the heart of the sinner and save him from his sins; however, it can also apply to those of us that already KNOW Jesus as our Lord and Savior.  Take a look…

“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.” -Revelation 3:20

In plain English…here is what Jesus is saying to the Believer, (and I paraphrase using my own words)

“Hello?!  I’ve been standing here at the door of your heart for a while now…if you hear me, can you please open the door?  I’d like to come in and have some ‘alone’ time with you! It’s been a while since we talked.  Can we discuss what’s going on in your life?  If you’ll share your troubles with me, I’m sure I can help…”

If you are reading this, and don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior…He is waiting patiently for you to hear His call, open the door of your heart, and experience His abundant Life.  It’s the reason He came and died!  He did it…just for YOU!

If you are already a Believer, He’s waiting for some ‘alone’ time with you…a ‘one on one’ visit with His friend!  He longs to have fellowship…relationship with you!  Take a moment out of your busy day, find a quiet place, and take a few moments to talk with Jesus!  You’ll be glad you did!

p.s. So will He!
