Jesus wants you to know He is always available to you. No matter your circumstance, position in life or emotional state, Jesus is never far. Jesus is a constant, not an acquaintance or part-time-friend. He’s simply a thought or a whisper away. In fact Jesus is knocking at your door, right now, waiting for you to invite Him into your life.
Revelation 3:20 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.
You need to understand the truth about Jesus and not believe the lies unbelievers spread:
The truth is Jesus loves you and He’s waiting for you to open your heart and invite Him in!
The truth is every moment of the day Jesus is calling to you–“Here I am!” But, it’s up to you to invite the Savior of the world into your life. As much as He wants a relationship with you, He’s not going to knock your door down. Jesus never forces Himself onto anyone.
Here is one of many beautiful paintings depicting Jesus knocking at your door. What makes this painting special is the purposeful omission of one object. Can you find what is missing?
It’s a door handle. The artist, William Holman Hunt, illustrates Jesus can’t open the door to us, meaning He doesn’t barge into our lives. Jesus needs you to open the door for Him and invite Him to come in.
Open your door and say, “Jesus, I need you.” Instantaneously, Jesus will fill your heart with His love.
A simple invitation doesn’t take much time to extend. But sadly, Jesus’ invitation is often replaced with selfish pleasures, even though it is only through Jesus man will be set free from sin.
If you would like to open your door and invite Jesus into your life, start reading The Word. Open a Bible and read the gospels to learn about the good life Jesus desires to share with you. The Bible is where one can find how Jesus shares His love and comfort. His message proclaims truth – If we believe and have faith, we are set free from sin.
Jesus keeps tap-tap-tapping at your door.
1.Jesus wants to share His instruction on love with you:
Mark 12:28-31 …Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
2. Jesus wants us to know He will comfort us:
2 Corinthians 1:3-4: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
3. Jesus wants us to believe in the power of faith in Him:
Matthew 21:21-22: Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
4. Jesus wants us to receive salvation:
2 Timothy 3:15: For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus offers us an open invitation, daily, to offer Him an open invitation to love us.
There are no loop holes, no catches, no good works we must do. We need not be guiltless or unbroken or unused or unflawed before we invite Him into our hearts. No human is free from those burdens. No life spent on earth is perfect or pure, so clean and flawless, except for Jesus’ thirty-three years He lived among us.
I urge you right now to make up the spare bedroom and add another chair to the dinner table! Once you open that door and invite Jesus into your heart as your living supplier of life, He will be with you always!
Do you have a personal relationship with God? If you don’t but would like to, I encourage you right now to pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com:
“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
