Behold, I stand at the door and knock
BE ZEALOUS THEREFORE AND REPENT
This morning, I was reminded of this painting that I remember seeing in my friend's home when I was very young and forgot all about it until today as I read Revelation 3: "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 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. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Here, Jesus is knocking on the door of the church. He's telling His church that they need to repent quickly of their sin. This is a message that we need to obey today! Do we have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying? FORGIVE ME, HEAVENLY FATHER, FOR I HAVE SINNED.
