Open the Door / Amazon Giveaway
One April Sunday almost thirty years ago I heard the sound of a gentle knock on the door of my soul.
At first I didn’t recognize He was there – His invitation was blocked by the noise of my self-sufficiency.
Busy and exhausting myself with limited human efforts, meanwhile He waited so very patiently for me – just on the other side of the door.
Tirelessly He stood, knocking and waiting for me.
The faint rhythm of His consistent love became a beckoning call to my heart. “Open the door…”
The door swung wide open and my humanity collided with divine holiness – I was humbled in His presence.
Aware of my sin before Him, yet completely loved and accepted in the arms of unconditional love.
He filled my heart to overflowing and I never wanted to leave.
Life’s responsibilities pull me toward them, tempting me with my old ways of self-reliance…
And Jesus still stands, knocking at the door of my soul every day – when I am listening I hear the familiar melody of His invitation encourage me – “Open the door…”
“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.”
