“SOMEONE, ANSWER THE DOOR!” Sunday Sermonette

” 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 that person, and they with me.”  Revelation 3:20 NIV

 

Read:   Revelation 3:19-22

 

As we walked door to door to invite neighbors to visit the new church in Boerne, sometimes it was a long wait at the door before someone would open it.   Once, I heard the mother yell through the house:   “Someone, answer the door!”

 

We are often like that.   We just don’t open the door when JESUS is knocking.   Still HE knocks again and again.   Sometimes we think we are just to busy and other times we don’t even hear HIM.  In order to hear, we first have to listen.

 

JESUS could just come on in.   But, HE waits.   The choice of accepting JESUS is each of ours, individually.  Have you answered the door to your heart when JESUS is knocking?   HE is offering HIMSELF to each and every person.   It is your choice.

 

HE may knock loudly or HIS knock may be as gentle as a whisper.  Anyway HE knocks, there will be no doubt.   JESUS is there for you.  If you will open the door, JESUS will come in.   No matter what you have done, said or thought, there is a new day.  Today can be your day.

 

Today’s prayer:  “Thank YOU, JESUS, for not stopping YOUR knocking on my heart.   I hear YOU and want to know YOU.   Now, I am answering YOUR call.  Amen.”
