The Persistant Knocker: Jesus at the Door

 ”Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.”

(Revelation 3:20)

A “Google image sweep” brings us oodles of artistic portayals of Jesus. I suppose they are helpful, but true inspiration comes from that decisive reading of Rev. 3:20. The religious iconography won’t bear the weight of what is real and true.

“Consider Jesus. Know Jesus. Learn what kind of Person it is you say you trust and love and worship. Soak in the shadow of Jesus. Saturate your soul with the ways of Jesus. Watch Him. Listen to Him. Stand in awe of Him. Let Him overwhelm you with the way He is.”    

—John Piper


The Classic


The Suburbs


Notice the Welcome Mat


Upscale Holy Land


The Sanctified Look

Jesus Knocking

The Roman Villa


The Narrow Streets


A Joyful Jesus at the door


Jesus before color TV


He works wonders while He is waiting on the flowers


The real reason we answer Him


Kids need him too.


He persistently loves you, so he keeps knocking


Notice: No door knob

A common theme is most of these doors have no door knobs.

They must be opened from the inside.

Sometimes the nail print is still there.

Is there a reason for this?

    Interesting to see the different focuses and details! hm. what is consistent, even in the photo, is the angle of Jesus’ head, listening for the footfall inside the house. He expects that someone is home! 🙂
    Hugs to you!
