Jesus wants to meet you. He loves you infinitely and wants you to know that love. The famous painting by William Hunt entitled “Light of the World” shows this. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. He is bringing light in on a darkened night.
But you may notice a problem with the painting. There is no doorknob on Jesus’ side of the door. It is our free will whether to open the door or not. We have the choice to let him in or not.
How do I meet him? Well, he is everywhere. He is with you. You can meet him in music, in art, in nature…anywhere. It is best to find a quiet place (a church works well too) and open your heart to him.
Prayer: Jesus, I want to know you and to know your love for me. Come into my heart.
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father."
