God "rebukes and disciplines" those that He loves and He loves all of us! He calls us to be "earnest" and to "repent," to sincerely turn away from wrong and to embrace forgiveness, love, and a renewed life through Jesus. He doesn't just tell us to repent and straighten up, but offers His help along the way. Jesus is waiting to help us and guide us. He is knocking, all we have to do is answer the door and listen to Him.
Take time to hear the knock at the door, then be sure to open the door and let Jesus in. Don't stop there! Listen to Jesus and accept His guidance as He comes in and fellowships with you. Jesus is knocking because He loves us, repent, fellowship with Him, and live a life for God's glory!
Thank You for loving me and disciplining me. You know what I need. Please help me to accept Your guidance. Allow me to open the door, invite You in, and listen to You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
