An Invitation of Help, Hope, and Healing

“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 that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” - Revelation 3:20-21
 
 
In the book of Revelation, John has a vision of Jesus returning to the churches of Asia Minor offering them commendation, critique, complements and correction. The aim was to perfect the Church, edify the saints, glorify God, annihilate the kingdom of darkness, and usher in God’s kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven.
 
But for all if that to happen, Christ must invite those who follow Him to turn the circumstances of their lives, their communities, and their churches around, and He does so with an image of Himself standing at the door knocking. It is an invitation of help, hope, and healing, one that is rooted in Christ’s desire to enter their lives, if only they would let Him in.
 
In Matthew 7, Jesus says, “So I say to you, ask and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find, knock, and the door will be opened.” And the question becomes, will you answer when Jesus is knocking? God wants to help you through all the trials and tribulations you face in life. He wants to provide you with the hope that there will be a better tomorrow. And He wants to heal you from your broken past. He will knock. He will offer you His blessings. But you must let Him in, in order to experience the amazing gifts He has to offer.
