“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).
Jesus does not force Himself upon anyone. What He has established is a relationship of love. He wants you to journey with Him into to your inner place. He must go there so that you may be perfected. Do not hinder the whole work of the Lord. Be transformed by being renewed in Him. He will clean house and then He plans on moving in. No half measures here. It really is all or nothing. This is the Christian proposition.
Lord, I only want what I want. I do not want You moving in. I want to do things that You would not approve of. Help me dear Lord to move beyond where I am and to have the right attitude and heart. You are the Savior and I must be saved. Guide me Lord in the salvation You have prepared and help me overcome the desire to negotiate with You about these things. Come dwell with me now and forever.
Lord Jesus, my Savior, I need saving this day. You know what is needed. I often do not even know what to ask for. Lead me in the way of everlasting life and remove from me the desire to not move at all. Help me to open the door when I am too lazy to get up and twist the knob. Help me work through whatever it is that keeps me from the salvation You are giving me. Amen.
