SHORT DEVOTIONAL - THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD Revelation 3:20 (NIV) - "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me."

There is a painting called "The Light of the World" by William Holman Hunt (1851 - 53). It represents Jesus in His Kingly Robes, standing at a closed door unable to enter. You may have seen stained glass windows adorned with this painting. In one hand He carries a lighted lamp with its rays penetrating through the cracks and crevices. With His other hand He knocks at the door. It is symbolic because there is only one way to enter - by opening the inside door.

Fifty years after he painted this masterpiece, Hunt explained, "This painting is a hint to Christians because the door is distinctive, having only one handle which is rather unique for a door - a door with Jesus on the other side". Jesus can do nothing until we open the door to allow Him into our hearts. When Christians say that they gave their hearts to Christ, they open up their hearts to the salvation that only He can give. The best thing that we can do is to respond positively to Christ knocking on our door. Without opening that door, Christ's salvation is non-existent, and unless we accept Him as our Lord and Savious, He can do nothing until we invite the "Light of Our World" inside.
