"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who seeks finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
When I was asked to pick out a stained glass window and tell what it meant to me, it made me think of all the times I walked into church and looked at them. They were beautiful with the light shining through them and each window depicting a story from the Bible. I saw them, but I didn't see them. Now when I look at them, I see them.
Christ knocking at the door makes me think of opportunity. The opportunity to open the door and let him into our hearts and lives. The opportunity to be a good Christian. The opportunity to help others. All of the opportunities that being a Christian gives to us. Many we take advantage of and many we don't.
Let us all take the time now to search our hearts and take advantage of all the opportunities we have been given. They will make us even better Christians than we are and have a better life for doing so.
Go in Peace.
