House Rules – If it rings…Answer it.

The next House Rule deals with listening and then obeying.  The Scripture comes from Revelation 3:20, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with Me.”  If you examine the famous painting depicting this verse, you’ll see that there’s no doorknob on the outside.  Jesus stands knocking, but can’t open the door Himself…we have to.  All throughout our  Spiritual journey with the Lord, He’ll knock at certain doors…doors of opportunity…doors of ministry…doors that are so foreign, scary, and frankly, so far-fetched,  that we can’t put our heads around what He’s calling us to do.  It’s at that point that we must make the decision to obey…to open that door  and allow Him and His plan for us to come in.
