Somebody’s At the Door! ~ June 9

Somebody’s At the Door!

Better go see who it is!

Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23

Wouldn’t it be awesome if God and Jesus moved into our earthly home? Can you imagine waking up each day and going into your office—or whatever it is you do—and finding Jesus and God there waiting for you? I Imagine this scene:

“Good morning,” they say in perfect unison.

Grinning ear-to-ear, my heart full of utter joy, I say, “Good morning!”

“You look rested,” they chime.

“Slept like a rock,” I say, still wearing my joyous grin.

“What are your plans this morning?” they ask. Their eyes sparkling with excited enthusiasm.

“I think I’ll write a few encouragements,” I answer. “Y’all want to help?”

They look at each other and grin—probably because I referred to them as y’all—they get a kick out of that. “Absolutely, we’d love to help!”

A sense of power flows into me—I know it’s from them—and I begin to write. I write simple messages of love and grace, and do so effortlessly. I feel their love filling the room.

If we love God and Jesus and obey their teaching, I believe they will become so real in our hearts and our lives we can almost reach out and touch them.

Is your doorbell ringing? Answer it. You never know who might be showing up for a visit. (And maybe they’ll want to stay!)
