Perhaps you’ve seen Holman Hunt’s painting of Jesus. Stone archway…ivy-
covered bricks…Jesus standing before a heavy wooden door.
It was in a Bible I often held as a young boy. Beneath the painting were the words, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him.”
Years later I read about a surprise in the painting. Holman Hunt had intentionally left out something that only the most careful eye would note as missing. I had not noticed it. When I was told about it I went back and looked. Sure enough, it wasn’t there. There was no doorknob on the door. It could be opened only from the inside. . .
God comes to your house, steps up to the door, and knocks. But it’s up to you to let him in.
Max Lucado And the Angels were Silent
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. Revelation 3:20
