It is overwhelming to me that the Creator of the universe would want a relationship with us. We are all searching for that something that will make us happy. God is there the whole time thinking…I’m right here!
Revelation 3:20 tells us, “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.”
I read a story recently about a man who loved animals. He worked from his house and his front door would not stay closed unless it was locked. The man rarely bothered to lock it.
One day he was working and heard his front door open. He went to see what the noise was and discovered that a neighborhood dog named Buster had pushed it open.
The man gave Buster a treat and ruffled his ears a bit. The dog returned each day. He would push the door open and wait for the man to come to him. He never barged his way in or begged for his treat. He just waited patiently until the man came to him and he always came.
As the weeks went by Buster started bringing some of his friends with him. Sometimes these furry friends wouldn’t go home! People would smile as they went by the man’s house. The front door would be open and they knew that he was inside enjoying the fellowship of Buster and his friends.
You know…we can have that same kind of fellowship with Jesus. We just need to open the doors of our heart and let him in. He’s just waiting for an invite!! Deb~
