Sunday Reflections

I stand at the door, and knock:
if a man hear my voice,
and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him,
and he with me."
~Revelations 3:20

I have always loved this painting. My oldest sister had one on her nightstand. I remember seeing it as far back as being 3 or 4 years old. Back then, I was troubled by the fact that there was no handle on the door and why Jesus had to keep knocking. Why didn't he just go in?

My sister, who knew the history of the painting explained to me that the Lord won't force his way in, we have to let him in.

I didn't understand at that early age, and maybe not until I was much older. Certain paths I decided to take as a teenager and a young adult took me too far to hear Him knock... maybe even ignore it at times.

I never denied that Jesus Christ was my Savior and Redeemer. I have always known that. I suppose I didn't understand the healing and comfort that I could receive by turning around and opening the door.

I am so thankful that the Savior is in my life. I would be lost without that knowledge.

And even if we don't hear Him the first time, he will always be there, patiently knocking.

All we have to do is let Him in.

Have a peaceful and restful Sunday~
