Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me. (Revelation 3:20 AMP)
Jesus is knocking on our heart’s door.
He’s desiring to be with us but won’t push His way in
It’s not a harsh knock but a gentle, please-let-me-in-because-I-love-you knock.
He’s calling at the door of our heart. It’s that fetching voice of love that could only be His. So He knocks a little and calls our name. We have to listen, not just hear. Listening understands. Listening wants to hear more. Listening is respectful and even maybe loving.
If we let Him in, He will dine with us. He has some words for our heart. And some meaningful conversation for our benefit.
We will eat with Him. We are given opportunity to make our requests and ask our questions. He wants to spend a little time listening to our heart.
When we eat together we tend to become comfortable and relaxed so the conversation flows freely here in a safe, confidential place in our soul. It’s more personal and easier to talk when we have have a lunch or cafė latte.
