This door beautifully framed by bougainvillea reminds me of a famous painting of Jesus standing at a door, which could only be opened from the inside. He so respects our freedom that He will not enter unless invited by us.
We are all happy to get invited whether to a wedding (or an ordination!) Jesus is waiting for an “invite” to cross the threshold of our hearts. We have to remove the burglarproofing of our busyness and the cobwebs of our distractions so that we can hear the gentle knock.
When we do open the door, we discover how much we are loved and we grow in intimacy with our Guest who wants so much to reveal Himself to us and to show us our inner beauty. Come in Lord! – Photo & meditation Sr Annette Chow
