Jesus and the door III

In this blog, I want to take a little different look at a picture of Jesus and the door. Let’s look at Rev. 3:20.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

The “I” in this verse is Jesus and He is standing not at the door to Heaven, as in the last few blogs, but he is standing at the door to your heart. Jesus is knocking on your heart’s door wanting to get in, wanting to come into your heart. He uses the same image of the Shepherd and hearing His voice as last week’s blog. You see Jesus doing everything he can to get your attention. He is knocking on your heart’s door and calling your name, all you have to do is open the door and He will come into your life. He will sup (dine) with you. You see one of the most intimate things you can do is have supper at someone’s house. Especially now days, we rarely entertain people in our own home anymore, we normally meet them at restaurant. Therefore, Jesus coming to your house or better yet into your heart is more intimate.

This verse inspired the picture below.





This is one of my favorite pictures. It is just like the verse; Jesus is standing at the door knocking wanting to get in. Notice the door, there is no doorknob on the outside. You have to open the door to let Jesus enter. Also notice the plants all around the door; they are thorns and thistles. They represent the sin in your life and that in spite of this Jesus still wants to come into your life.

I remember the first time I saw this picture over at my friend Rex Musselman’s house. It was in their living room and it was the big picture over the couch. I was in awe of it. I asked my friend what it meant and he tried to explain it, but was having trouble, so his dad came in from the field about then and as he was sitting in the kitchen taking off his shoes Rex asked him to explain it to me. This picture has had a lasting effect on me ever since I saw it the first time. I would like to thank Mr. Musselman for explaining it to me and dedicate this to him, as I know he is in Heaven with Jesus.
