“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Revelation 3:19-20

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“I correct and discipline everyone I love.

So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

.

Look! I stand at the door and knock.

If you hear my voice and open the door,

I will come in,

and we will share a meal together as friends.”

.

– Revelation 3:19-20 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

“I correct and discipline everyone I love.”

Jesus’ divine affection leads Him to reprove and correct us

– out of love, not anger:

“for the Lord corrects those He loves,
just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.”
(Prov 3:12)

.

“So be diligent and turn from your indifference.”

Jesus wants us to stop being lukewarm,

to have fervour for truth and divine charity

and ardent zeal for the glory of God.

.

Christ knocking on the door

is one of the most touching images in the Bible.

It is a way of describing God’s love for us:

“I stand at the door and knock.”

Jesus knocks at the door of our heart

and waits patiently for us to respond

and let Him,

that we may get to know Him better.

.

“I stand at the door and knock.”

We should be listening out for His knock,

and be ready to gladly open the door for Him.

.

“I stand at the door and knock.”

Our Lord awaits our response to His call.

When we make the effort,

it will revive our interior life

and we will experience the indescribable joy of intimacy with Him.

.
