Scripture: Revelation 3:19-20
Journal: What would it look like for you to open the door for Jesus today? What would it mean in your life? How would it change you? How would it change what you are going through? Will you open the door and let Jesus come in?
Reflection: All too often I am looking for resolution rather than communion. I am wanting Jesus to fix it rather than enter into it. I am looking for a way out or a way through instead of looking for him. Maybe that is why I don’t open the door. Maybe I am so busy putting my head down and trying to muscle through, or racking my brain trying to find a way out, that I never respond to the knock and simply open the door so Jesus can come in and be with me in the midst of the chaos. That is his invitation. He doesn’t promise to resolve, or to help us avoid or escape, but only to be present with us in whatever we may be going through. But we have to open the door.
Closing Prayer: Come on in, Lord Jesus. Come into my heart and my life this day and embrace me with your love and your presence. Come in, Lord Jesus! Amen.
