Christ wants an entrance to our affections. He is not satisfied with our cold acts of duty. Give Me thy heart is His demand. Has He obtained it? Or is He still standing outside? Remember, the people to whom He addresses this message are professing Christians. Like all too many, they are lukewarmindifferent to spiritual things. They are too busy with worldly concerns to pay much attention to the spiritual reality of the gospel they profess. The Lord Jesus refuses to allow such a situation to go unchallenged. He must have the hearts throne of anyone who professes His name.
The mark of a true Christian, as distinct from a mere professor, is that however cold in heart he has become, he cannot ignore the voice, or the knocking, of the Saviour. Do you hear that voice, that insistent knocking, today? You may think that the way to renewed fellowship will be long and difficult, but you are wrong. Jesus says that all that is required is to hear His voice and open the door. Throw open your heartyour affections, your will, your inmost beingto the Saviour, and He will enter and establish a fellowship with you that will be sweet, satisfying, and unbroken.
The King of Glory wants to dine with you today, and He wants you to dine with Him forever. Will you heed His call?
