Behold I stand at the door and knock...

Jesus said...

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in..."
Revelations 3:20

The above picture is very famous. It shows Jesus knocking on the door of a house and saying, "Behold I knock".

When the artist had completed this painting he brought his young son in to see it. He gazed intently for a while at the new picture and then shook his head.

"It's great - but there's one mistake. You've forgotten something".

His father frowned. "What have I forgotten?"

"You've forgotten to put a latch on the door! Nobody could get in!" his son exclaimed.

"Oh no", replied his father quietly, "There's a latch on the door but it's on the inside".

It was the artist's way of showing that only you and I can open the door to HIM.

When Jesus knocks at your door will you let Him in?
