God has place this wonderful creation in our hands. As U2 sings, "It's a beautiful day, don't let it slip away." We have this one life to live on this beautiful planet so enjoy these reflections on God, faith, life, and music. "After the flood all of the colors came out. It's a beautiful day."

Jesus is Knocking

Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come into you and eat with you, and you with me.  Revelations 3:20
What is your relationship to Jesus?  There is a painting that shows Jesus standing at a door knocking.  As you look at the door you can see there is no knob or latch.  If the door is to be opened the person on the inside must answer the knock.  Jesus is knocking will you open the door?

With Jesus standing their knocking, where are you in relationship to your door?  Does the door open easily and smoothly?  Are you someone who is always inviting Jesus into your life.  So when you here the knock you stop what you are doing, get still and invite Jesus in.  Or is you door covered with overgrown vines and brush growing up around it because you haven't opened the door in a very long time.  It has been so long since the door has been open that you aren't even sure you heard a knock.  Jesus will not break down the door.  He will not force a relationship.

Jesus is standing at the door knocking.  Jesus wants a relationship, wants you to open the door to your heart.  No one can open the door for you.  You have to choose to open the door.  Are you willing to take that chance and open the door.
