Revelation 3:20 Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you hear me call and open the door, I’ll come right in and sit down to supper with you.
While cruising through Virginia, Maryland or Delaware during vacation I heard that old (relatively speaking) Paul McCartney song that goes, over and over, “Someone’s knocking at the door/ somebody’s ringing the bell.” Eventually he says, “Do me a favor, open the door- let’em in.” If you’ve never heard this song reply to this email and let me know. I doubt Paul McCartney was thinking of the above verse when he wrote his song, but maybe he had something similar in mind. We sometimes sense that there is something more out there just beyond our sight or reach that is calling for our attention. It may be the feeling that there is more to life than we are experiencing. It may be the hope that things can make sense. It may be the promise of love. The Christian view is that in any of these, or countless other, forms the real mystery that beckons just beyond our grasp is God. It is God that wishes to open a different way of life to us. Maybe this week you’ll detect a faint knocking. Do me a favor, open the door and let him in.
