Let Him In!

“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.

(Revelation 3:20 NLT)

In the mid 1900s, artist Warren Sallman composed the well-known and much-loved painting, “Christ at Heart’s Door,” which was based on the passage from Revelation 3:20. This beautiful painting hung in our house for years before I realized its true meaning. In the painting, Sallman portrays Jesus knocking on the door of the individual unbeliever’s heart. What is unique about the door is that it has no knob on the outside, which suggests that only the individual can open the door of their heart to Jesus, as Jesus makes clear in today’s passage. He’ll never force Himself in so we must welcome Him in ourselves. Don’t keep Him waiting out much longer. Let Him in!

Jesus waits for us to welcome Him into our hearts.
