It's opportunity knocking.
Left ventricles. Right ventricles. Aortas. Pumps and arteries. Our hearts are miraculous little machines. Pumping and beating. Bringing blood in; pushing it out. Red blood. Blue blood. Filled with life-bringing oxygen; sending empty blood on to be replenished.
With all its many parts, it’s hard to remember that our heart also has another important piece in its amazing construction—a tiny door. The most important part of our heart machine is that door—the door where Jesus stands knocking.
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 that person, and they with me. (Revelation 3:20)
That little door on our heart provides a way to give us new life now and eternal life forever. Jesus stands and knocks. Let’s open the door. We only have one opportunity in our earthly life to do so.
Lub-dub. Lub-dub. Lub-dub. That’s not just the sound of your heart beating. It’s the sound of Jesus knocking.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for seeking us out and making it easy to find us. Please attune our ears to your knocking at our heart's door. Amen.
WHAT ABOUT YOU? Do you have a horrible knock-knock joke to share?
