Who's That Knocking?
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" Rev. 3:20 (KJV). A very familiar scripture verse, which has been used greatly to bring people to salvation (myself included). However, this verse was actually intended for a Christian church, albeit a lukewarm church.
Nevertheless, whether we are a non-Christian, a lukewarm Christian or any other kind of Christian, this verse reveals the heart of God. He wants to have fellowship with us; in fact, that is why he created us (Rev. 4:11). He does not force himself on us but is politely knocking and hoping we will invite him in.
Fellowshipping over a meal isn't something you do with a casual acquaintance but a close friend or relative. God wants to have close fellowship with us - why? So, he can minister to us, encourage us, change us and maybe tell us some secrets.
Most people lead busy lives, but make sure you are not too busy to open the door when you hear him knocking.
