Is someone opening the door? Jesus Knocking on the Door of Your Heart
English artist Holman Hunt drew a famous painting over the years. That painting represented the Lord Jesus Christ standing outside the door of a house, his hand banging on the door. When Holman finished his work, he showed the painting to one of his artist friends for his opinion.
His friend contemplated the painting carefully and then said: It is really wonderful, but its only flaw is that the door has no handle! Holman replied that because the handle is inside, you open it.
Everyone who opens his heart to the Lord Jesus Christ enters his life and creates in him a new heart, a new mind, and a new spirit. For the Lord Jesus to enter your heart is to transform that mental and cognitive belief that you have into an actual reality that contains your being and changes the course of your life. Then the Lord Jesus is the master and the motive for your thoughts, words, and actions.
If someone hears my voice and opens the door
When′ the Lord Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the angels of heaven rejoiced and a star shone in the heights. When Jesus entered Zacchaeus’s house and turned Zacchaeus’ heart, Zacchaeus transformed from a tax collector, slanderer for profit, with a love of money, to a person who gives to the poor and needy.
When Jesus entered the villages and cities, he caused a change in the people, and many loved him and followed him. ′When Jesus entered the temple, he cleansed it of corruption, and restored it as a center of worship and holiness:
When′ the Lord Jesus was crucified on the cross, a change occurred in the thief’s heart, and in heaven. When′ Jesus entered the heavenly Holy of Holies to purify my heart and yours from our sins, Heaven rejoiced at the salvation that had been accomplished.
Every place Jesus entered, He made a big change… He wants to make your life and mine a better thing. The Lord Jesus says, “If someone hears my voice and opens the door… have you heard the voice of the Lord Jesus today?
Remember that picture by Holman Hunt. The door handle is from the inside, and you alone have the key to your heart. The Lord’s hand will not tire, He will not tire. He is near. Very much from you, all you have to do is pray to him saying: Lord, enter into my heart today and make me a new person! (Google Translate)
