The Door

The pastor portrayed a lovely word picture yesterday.  Here is the scripture:

Look!  Here I stand at the door and knock.  If you hear me calling and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal as friends.  I will invite everyone who is victorious to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.  Anyone who is willing to hear should listen to the Spirit and understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches.     Revelation 3: 20 – 22.

The preface to this scripture was about being neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm.  Sometimes when we are lukewarm, we can ignore Jesus, maybe ask him to leave the house.

What this scripture says is that even when we treat Jesus mean, he doesn’t just leave the house and walk away.  Doesn’t give up on US.  He patiently turns around, stands at the door, and knocks.

Beautiful picture of unconditional love.  One that is difficult to find on this earth.
