A Daily Devotion for Monday, April 24

Revelation 3:20


"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."


I do not know what to make of the book of Revelation. I have never done a study specifically covering this part of scripture. But the message in these words seems clear enough, and is consistent with other parts of scripture. Jesus is available to all. We need only welcome Him in. We listen for His voice, and we open the door. These words reassure us regarding Jesus' availability and accessibility. "Here I am!" We don't need to keep looking.


Lord God, you sent your Son to earth, and the people still struggle with acceptance. But these words, along with other passages of scripture, remind me of Jesus' accessibility. Allow me opportunities to share this good news, in a useful and productive way. Amen

I’ve missed WHO this verse is addressed to. I understood this picture as Jesus standing outside an unbelievers house (heart) asking to come in. In other words this passage is seen as an invitation for a…

Revelations 3:20


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.


Over the years there have been many discussions about this verse in various groups I have been a part of. While the discussions have been interesting and the thought of it happening a bit terrifying – some first thoughts were always is my house clean enough and do I have food to share. Silly thoughts that distract us from the true meaning. I don’t think it’s meant to be taken so literally. I believe we are by being asked to be open and look around us for opportunitie…

Revelation 3:20 This verse always brings to mind it’s many depictions. All have one theme in common. The door on which Jesus knocks does not have a handle or knob for Him to open it. Jesus does not force Himself. The Crusades and other historical aspects of Christianity that featured forced conversions certainly grieved the Holy Spirit. We are shocked at the forced conversions of Christians by radical Islamicists in the Middle East and Hindu fundamentalists in Asia today. They justify this by pointing to Christianity’s history. It is not trite to insist two wrongs do not make a right. Jesus still knocks, but He must be voluntarily admitted by the persons who hear and open the door of their hearts…
