“I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference. Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends” (Revelations 3:19-20, NLT).
Do I realize that I must continually seek His heart, or do I believe that I am at the place where I have “arrived”? Is He the heartbeat of my life, or is He on the outside waiting and knocking to be invited into every area that I keep hidden? Do I believe that all is well when in truth I am just a withering branch on the vine? When I believe that I am just where I need to be in my relationship with Him, then I am dying–not dying to self, but to Him. Without continually seeking Him, I have none of His life-blood flowing and rendering power in my life. Without surrender, I have no power or no purpose.
