The Pulse - May 17


WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE OPEN THE DOOR?

Hard to believe that it is almost June! The summer is just around the corner. Could I suggest a good summer project that will go a long way to making this a summer to remember?

Please, open the DOOR!

Jesus speaks to a group of believers in Revelation 3:14ff who have become very "out of touch with Him."

...you are neither hot nor cold... you are lukewarm... v. 15-16

...you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," 
and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked... v. 17

Behold I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice, AND OPENS THE DOOR, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with ME... v. 20

This is a gracious invitation from Jesus to those of us who think we do not need Him. In essence, we have closed the door of our life to Him. Yet He stands at the door and knocks... and knocks! He waits and waits, until WE OPEN THE DOOR. If we do... He comes in, relaxes and relates, and shares intimate things with us... and us with Him! It is our choice. There is no doorknob on the outside of the door of our life, only on the inside. Let's see if we can start listening to His knock and His loving voice... and open the door.

Watch for The Pulse this summer for more encouragement!

Grace and peace,

Tom Oyler 
Lead Pastor
