Art in the Word

Rev. 3:20
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in."
NIV notes: The Laodicean church was complacent and rich. They felt self-satisfied, but they didn't have Christ's presence among them. Christ knocked at the door of their hearts, but they were so busy enjoying worldly pleasures that they didn't notice that He was trying to enter. The pleasures of this world - money, security, material possessions - can be dangerous, because their temporaray satisfaction makes us indifferent to God's offer of lasting satisfaction. If you find yourself feeling indifferent to church, to God or the Bilble, you have begun to shut God out of your life. Leave the door of your heart constantly open to God and you won't need to worry about hearing his knock. Letting him in is our only hope for lasting fulfillment.
