Revelation 3:20 — If Any Man Hear My Voice

The Lord is longsuffering, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). As such, Jesus knocks at the door, patiently waiting for us to answer. Jesus is the door (John 10:7; 10:9). When we hear his voice (John 10:27) and heed the gospel call (Romans 10:17) by believing in him (John 14:1) we are born again (1 Peter 1:23) of the Spirit (John 3:5) and become joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:16-17).

When we answer, Jesus comes to make his abode with us (John 14:23) and he will dine with us. What a wonderful blessing as Jesus himself is the bread of life (John 6:33-35; 6:48-51).

Praise the Lord and give thanks to him always, for he is good and his mercy endures forever (Psalms 106:1).

Revelation 3:14-22

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: 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.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
