Open The Door

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock....  Revelation 3:20

This “door” is the entrance into our spirit.  We must quickly respond to the manifestation of His presence (knocking), and invite Him to come within the “room” of our spiritual being. As our desire for The Lord grows we learn how to open the “door of entrance” into our spirit. The Lord will come to visit with us,  waiting for us to respond to His knock upon the door of our spirit.  We must, in an attitude of expectant anticipation and worship, invite Jesus to come within. The “door of entrance” to our spiritual chamber is always within our control, and can only be opened by us. 

If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him….  Revelation 3:20

We must open the door. This principle is established in Scripture. He will knock (testing our awareness) waiting for us to open the door.  But, He will leave if we do not invite Him to come within. Beyond His abiding presence (gifts and blessings) we begin to long for His “manifest presence.” As we seek to have a “personal relationship” with Jesus we will become intensely aware of the longing of “The Bridegroom” for “The Bride” and we will abandon all that would hinder us from “sensing” and “quickly responding” to the “manifest presence” of Our Lord.
