Just Because (4)

I began these Scripture posts as an outflow of my time in the Word throughout the week.  It could be from a message at church, a passage in our Women’s Bible Study, something I’ve been studying through the year or some verses I’m camping out in to commit to memory. (Ephesians Chapter 1–I’ve been there all year 🙂
The main reason, tho’ is to remind myself and you, my readers to remember and refresh–we are lost without the compass of God’s Word showing us the right direction to go, encouraging us along the way that God’s love never fails.
And why did God so love the world?

Just Because.

Welcoming Growth

19 Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them].

So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent

[changing your mind and attitude].<sup class="crossreference" value="(G)”>

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.” 
Revelation 3:19,20 Amplified

We were visiting my son’s church a few weekends ago and heard their young, anointed Pastor Daniel preaching a series from Revelation about John’s letters to the churches.

For many years, this ‘behold I stand at the door and knock’ Scripture

has been used for a salvation verse.

But it is not–it’s written to Believers–me and you….and it’s really got me thinking.

  1. Wow! That's a new take on that scripture for me, too. Warrants meditation, doesn't it.

    You're camping out in Ephesians 1 this year? I'm camping ('love that expression you use!) in Romans 8. I've memorized up to verse 26, and have the same goal: to finish the chapter by Dec. 31.

    How about that? We've been on parallel tracks for eight months, and didn't even know it!!
