Would we care if the house was messy? What on earth would we say? Could He help me with my math problems? (Wouldn’t that be cool to talk about in school the next day!)
A picture of Him knocking on a big wooden door hung in our church basement. His head was tilted towards the door a bit—I wondered what He was thinking. I thought He was probably trying to hear what was going on inside.
Our Sunday School class diligently learned the corresponding Bible verse: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in, and eat with him, and he with me.” (I would pray that it didn’t mean I had to cook.)
We were taught to open the door and say “Come in” to Jesus.
I like that lesson.
Here’s what I think…
I think Jesus is still knocking on our doors.
Even if we’ve opened the door before for Him.
I think Jesus knocks because He wants our attention. Again.
He wants us to have more conversations with Him.
Learn new things.
Experience even more deeply his love, his grace, his presence.
Think about this for a minute…
Imagine that Jesus is knocking at your door.
What do you think He wants to say to you?
I believe that if we ask the question, our heart will tell us the answer.
He is knocking, you know.
Open the door.
Have a conversation with The One Who Loves You Most.
