Revelation 3:20

Pastor John Ortberg tells about some friends of his who have a daughter. When she was five years old, she told her parents, “I know Jesus lives in my heart because when I put my hand on it I can feel Him walking around in there.”

Right on!

Jesus wants to enter our heart and cleanse us from all our sin so that we can go to heaven. He tells us in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” So whether we can “feel Him walking around in there” or not, the fact is that He is there.

But do you know what?

Jesus will never be in your heart until and unless you ask Him in. So the important thing is not if we can feel Him in our heart but instead, have we invited Him into our heart. If we have done so, feel Him or not, He is there! And O yes, one other thing–once we have asked Him into our heart, He will never leave us or forsake us!

It is a forever thing!
