Topic: Open The Door “Higher Every Day – Pastor W. F. Kumuyi. [Saturday, June 3, 2017]
“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” (Rev. 3:20).It was a sad night for a couple when a gang of armed robbers stormed a new estate in Abuja, the Federal Capital city of Nigeria. After knocking furiously at the gate and shooting sporadically for a while without any response from the occupants of the house, they eventually forced their way in. They threatened to kill the man and rape the wife for wasting their time. However, they later left but took away much money, electronic equipment and one of their vehicles. They operated in the manner of the biblical thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy. However, some of them were later caught and the vehicle recovered. Unlike the armed robbers, Jesus will never force Himself into the heart of any person, just as shown in our text above. He is a gentle Saviour who waits for an invitation from a willing heart before he can enter. He comes not to steal or kill but to give abundant life. The hardened heart will never have Jesus as a Guest. Open the door of your heart to Jesus today and your joy will know no bound.
Challenge: Open the door of your heart to Jesus today.
