Your Daily Devotion From Doctor Tabor
“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.”
The Door of Your Heart
Most of us relate this passage in Revelation to the time of our initial salvation experience with Jesus. The door of our heart has a handle that can be opened from the inside to allow entrance to Jesus, or anyone. It is often said that Jesus is a gentleman, and he will not barge into our houses uninvited. That was true on the day of your salvation, and it is true today.
Have you ever considered that Jesus is still knocking at the door of your heart? He still desires entrance, not as a stranger but as a friend or a neighbor. He wants to spend time with you. He sees that you need help with household chores and offers to assist you. He asks about your family, friends, and loved ones. He wants to know how work is going. He wants to listen to what’s truly on your heart.
Look, he’s even brought you a meal and wants to share it with you. You are hurting, and he just wants to sit with you. Even though you are a part of God’s family, you still have the choice of what you allow God to do in your life. He wants to do it all.
Pray: “Lord, help me to keep the door of my heart open to you at all times. I want to know you better.”
