Rarely do I hear someone knocking at my door. If someone does knock, I usually know they are coming because I have invited them over to our home. So, when there is a knock at the door, and I don’t expect it, I get a little nervous. Who is it? What do they want? Why are they here? And why didn’t my dog let me know someone arrived? (Probably because he’s thinking the same things: Who is it? What do they want? Why are they here? And why didn’t my people let me know someone was coming?)
Once I opened my door to find a couple who were wanting to share their beliefs with me. I listened and prayed about how God wanted me to handle the situation and share His Son, Jesus. Our discussion lead from one thing to another and then to a tv program called JellyTelly. JellyTelly is like the Christian version of Netflix for kids and was created by the same people who make VeggieTales. (The family devotions rock!) I may have not gotten to share Jesus, but I sent them to a source, they might be willing to try, that most definitely would.
In Revelation 3:20, Jesus is knocking on our hearts door. He wants to come in, get to know each other and become friends. I pray that the family who knocked on my door will open their hearts to Jesus’ knocking.
Do you pray for the people who knock on your door? Do you ask God to help you share Jesus with them? God may be sending you your next witnessing opportunity. Don’t miss it.
