Thought of the Day !!

Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.
                                                            Revelation 3:20 (NLT)

I've used this verse before when giving talks at spiritual retreats.  I'll knock on the podium and tell people that Jesus is knocking on the door of their hearts.  If we'll but open the door and let Him in, we will be complete.

Of course this verse was written not for people to invite Christ into their lives and be saved.  In its original context, these words were written to the Church of Laodicea in Asia Minor.  They had become a lukewarm church who had become indifferent to Jesus and his message.  And Jesus speaks these words to Christians, asking them to open the door and let Him back in.

Unlike other major religions like Islam and Hinduism and Buddhism, we Christians not only seek God, but also have a God that continuously seeks us.  Jesus seeks to be in relationship with the unsaved.  But He also seeks us when we become complacent or stray away from Him. 

If you've become complacent, indifferent, lukewarm, etc., Jesus is at the door of your heart.  And He's knocking.  All you have to do is open the door (again).  He's waiting to come in because He loves you.

In the love of Christ,
