Come into my life Lord Jesus – Prayer for August 5. Jesus is always ready to come into your life. The only thing that is needed – is your willingness to open the door of your heart and let him come in.
Bible Verse for Today
See, I’m standing in front of the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will go in to it. (Revelation 3:20)
This Bible verse has a visual expression – the painting “The Light of the World” by the English artist William Holman Hunt. This painting shows Jesus, who holds a lantern in his hand and knocks on the house door. Interestingly, the door in the picture has no handle, so Jesus can’t open it himself. The only one who can do this is the owner of the house.
The words of the apostle John and the painting illustrate the position of Jesus. He gently and patiently knocks on the door of our hearts and souls and offers us his peace and help.
Jesus stands and waits patiently for our decision and our answer. He does not open the door himself and does not force his way into our lives. He does not force his will on us. On the contrary, it offers all people the gift of salvation and the light to guide us. The only thing needed is our permission to come in and stay in our homes and hearts.
