“Look! I’m standing at the door and knocking. If any hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to be with them, and will have dinner with them, and they will have dinner with me. ” (Rev. 3:20 CEB)
Jesus is knocking.
Can you hear him?
Or is your life too noisy?
Jesus is knocking.
Will you open the door?
Or are you too busy?
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”(Matthew 11:27-30, MSG)
Can you hear him now?
Then, open the door!
Your Savior is waiting for you!
Thank you for knocking on our doors.
Thank you for calling our names.
Thank you for offering us yourself.
Help us to recover our lives with you.
Show us how to take a real rest.
Teach us the unforced rhythms of grace.
Teach us to live freely and lightly.
