“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
As I read this this morning I have to check myself. I am challenged by this passage, maybe even more today than usual. You see we so often quote this scripture but do we assess our door? What I mean by that is are we listening for the sound of His knock and responding or are we disregarding it as if it were a salesman. If we are not intentional about opening the door and inviting Him in to fellowship with us, eventually that knock won’t come. Eventually other things and people take first place and no longer is God center.
I challenge you if you’ve read this to listen for the quiet knocking of a God who is jealous for you time and affection. I challenge you to prepare a table for Him by opening the door to a quiet time of reflection on His word and His voice.
Don’t allow the days between Sundays to be absent of His fellowship. It is not enough to fill up on Sunday and starve yourself for the week. Don’t lock the door on God. Rather open the door and the windows, invite Him to join you right where you’re at. He’s already prepared the meal.
Matthew 4:4 says: Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”
