Open Your Heart to Jesus

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. –Revelation 3:20

Billy Graham once said, “I have searched the world over in my travels for contented and happy men. I have found such men only where Christ has been personally and decisively received. There is only one permanent way to have peace of soul that wells up in joy, contentment, and happiness, and that is by repentance of sin and personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.” Throughout the centuries, Jesus Christ continues to heal broken hearts and broken spirits. All over the world today He is placing hope into shattered lives and peace into troubled souls. When you get in touch with Jesus Christ, one thing is guaranteed: you will never remain the same. I love the old Russian proverb that says “He who has this disease called Jesus Christ will never be cured.”

1. Revelation 3:20 tells us that Jesus is standing at the door of our hearts. What must we do before He can come into our hearts?

2. What do you think the meaning of the phrase, “and I will come in and eat with Him and He with me,” in Revelation 3:20 might be?

Matthew 24:33; Luke 12:36; John 14:23
