Fellowship with Christ: 18 May 2014

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. — Revelation 3: 20

Message

Those who hear the voice of the Lord and let Him in will experience fellowship with Him. Doors separate spaces and people from one another. In much the same manner, sin has led to a separation between mankind and God. When someone opens a door to a person who knocks, it is a sign of hospitality and trust. When Jesus seeks to enter a person’s heart, He does so in a loving manner. He never imposes Himself on anyone!

Core Points

Just as doors separate spaces and people, sin separates us from God.

  • Jesus offers Himself to help us overcome this separation, but He never imposes Himself upon us.
  • Our heart’s door can only be opened from within; whether we open it or not is up to us.
  • Those who let the Lord in will experience fellowship with Him: already today in the meal fellowship of Holy Communion, and ultimately also at the marriage feast of the Lamb.
