"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."
Let me begin by admitting to confusion about the book of Revelation in general. But this verse tells us something Jesus would likely have said while teaching along the way. Jesus is ready to be with each and every one of God's creation. He is at the door, knocking. I suppose some never hear him, or at least do not recognize the sound. Some ignore the knocking and choose never to investigate. Even when we know Jesus is there, waiting for us, don't we sometimes ignore the knocking?
Holy Lord, I want to welcome you in, and to answer your call. Please be in my life, every minute of every day. I am sorry for the times I do not respond because I do not hear you, or do not recognize your knock at the door. I often feel undeserving, and this gets in my way. Amen
