Have you ever been telling someone about Jesus only to have them ask, “Why should I open my heart to Christ?” How do you answer them? Today’s devotional shows you how Spurgeon did. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Revelation 3:20 (ESV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
“‘Behold,’ says the risen and glorified Jesus, ‘I stand at the door, and knock.’ It is at the door of Laodicea, the door of that church which was lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, and it is at your door, O lukewarm Christian, that Christ is now knocking. What is the cure for your lukewarmness? It is Christ’s standing at the door, and knocking, and saying unto you, ‘If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.’ This will lift you up out of your lukewarmness; and, instead of Christ spueing you out of his mouth, as it looks as if he must do, he will come and feast with you, and you shall feast with him. Open your hearts to him, now…” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit LI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1905), p. 591]
