Get The Door, Will You?
So, you are sitting in worship. All your friends are there…the regular members and some visitors have even come. You are feeling good. No worries. The singing is just as you like it. The prayer was relevant. Why the preacher even has your attention…more or less. When suddenly there comes a knock at the door (don’t ask me why the church door is locked). No one moves. The knocking continues. The preacher says, “Will someone please check on that?” And you go to the door. It’s not a glass door and you can’t see through it. It has one of those little chains attached (indulge me a little, okay?). You open the door as far as the chain will allow and peer out. There stands Jesus! I don’t know how you recognize Him, you just do. You swallow as you try to find your voice. “Wh…Wh..What do you need, Lord?” you finally stammer. “May I come in please,” He says. Confused, you leave Him there at the door and return to the assembly. “Who was it?” someone says. “You’re not going to believe it,” you respond. “It’s Jesus.”
Now, let me ask you, give me your reaction…what happens next in that assembly? What do they think, say, do? What should they think, say, do? Could such a thing ever occur? Check out Revelation 3:20. What strikes you about this situation? I’ll be looking forward to reading your thoughts if you have the time to comment.
Thank you for stopping by…for sharing…for loving Him enough to remind us of Him in your special way among us. I love you…but He is completely taken with you.
