«Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.’ REVELATION 3:20, NKJV
Our first day in Egypt, my three friends and I found ourselves in the middle of Cairo with a plan to go visit the pyramids of Giza. But we couldn’t find the bus that would take us there. As you know, many countries have a different language but still use the same number symbols we do in North America. But Egypt doesn’t. Their numbers are totally different, so it took us awhile to find the correct bus stop. After fifteen minutes, we saw a bus approaching in the distance with the number symbol we were looking for. This was our bus! As we looked to the right where our bus was approaching, all the other people waiting at our bus stop suddenly started to run to the left, away from the oncoming bus!
What was going on?
The bus never stopped; it only slowed down. A moment later it passed us and caught up to the people who were now running alongside the bus at about the same speed. In a flash, the people running alongside the bus jumped onto the bus, and the bus sped of It all happened so quickly, and we realized we had just missed our bus. We missed it because we didn’t know the system. Twenty minutes later, another bus came, and this time we boarded it successfully and made it to the pyramids! Getting to heaven doesn’t require us to be aware of any special systems, characters, or languages.
GOD doesn’t want us to «miss the bus,» so He’s made it very simple for us to get to heaven. JESUS knocks on the door of your heart every day. Every day you must answer the door and decide if you will accept Jesus into your heart by asking Him to be part of everything you do that day. What will you decide for today?
