8 Jesus the Door of Life

The Last Step

Holman Hunt's Jesus at the DoorSo many people miss this last step of commitment and thus never come to know Jesus Christ and the fulfilled life that he brings.

Jesus Knocks

Perhaps no verse in the Bible makes this last step clearer than Revelation 3.20 where Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him."

Door to Life

Jesus Christ waits outside the door to your life. He will not force his way in. He wants to be asked in.✞

Holy BibleIn Holman Hunt's famous painting, "The Light of the World," it has been pointed out that there is no handle shown on the door. Holman Hunt however deliberately placed the handle out of view on the inside where only you can open it. You become a true Christian when you open the door to life and let Jesus come in and live in your heart.✞

A Final Step

BabyHave you ever taken this step? Perhaps you have never realized before that there was anything for you to do. You can be baptized, confirmed, go to church, even read the Bible and pray, and still leave Jesus Christ outside the door to your life and therefore miss all the blessings that he has in store for you.✞
