WHOíS KNOCKING AT THE DOOR?
Written by Deb Rutter
Do you expect me to believe that? But that happened in the dark ages! I can think for myself! I have the right to do what I want! Iím not a kid anymore!
How often has this been said? Okay, letís look at things from a different perspective. The reason this approach is possible is that you do have a mind, a beautiful mind and you are young adults.
In Jesus time on earth people lived with Jesus, witnessed healings and miracles, heard the Scriptures from his own lips and they willingly died for their faith in Jesus. Why, because it was radical and new? No! Because they not only believed in Jesus but they experienced the Living Word.
To believe in something is to be convinced that something is good, true and acceptable. But if you extend to the next stage; you know. To know something, it becomes real, questions are null and void because you have relationship with your gained knowledge, its personal.
Mathematics is a difficult subject for some, your teacher explains the equation and you believe that it is correct, even if you canít get your head around it. With sound teaching, perseverance, willingness and an open mind you become to see, you know, you understand. It becomes your knowledge, not what someone else tells you.
Jesus is gentle and all loving, he doesnít pound down your door, he knocks quietly. Not until you are quiet and begin to listen can you hear the consistent tapping. When you hear it, it is still your choice to open the door or not. You can meet Jesus or ignore. You can talk with Jesus and begin a relationship with him, your own personal experience, when you want to come to know.
Imagine the wind blowing in the trees, how do you know that itís there, that it truly does exist? You canít see the wind but you can experience the wind by its effects. You feel the wind on your skin, you can see the dust and items carried as it goes and you can witness the trees bend and swirl from its force. How different would Jesusí effect on people have been when he walked the earth? Yet people still refused to stop and open the door to the truth, to invite Jesus in. Jesus still walks among us, heís right here with you now. His Holy Spirit is moving and waits for your invitation. Come to know Jesus, experience relationship with him.
The Bible is filled with every answer to every question. We are not only invited to believe but to know Jesus first hand, just as the Apostles were. Questions are good. ďAsk, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to youĒ. (Luke 11: 9) Courage is not in opening the door, courage is your desire to examine the answers to your questions and be willing to allow Jesus into your heart.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
