"Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." - Revelation‬ ‭3:19-20‬


The Lord reminds us that He sometimes He has to get our attention in order for us to stop what we’re doing - or start doing what we aren’t - and heed His loving correction. He tells us ahead of time that He will correct us because He loves us, and that sometimes the correction is painful.

Many people today have the strange idea that a parent who loves his child would never discipline him, never tell him he’s wrong, and certainly never punish him. But the truth is that a parent who really loves his child will correct him, even if that correction requires punishment, because he doesn’t want the child to destroy himself.


God is not subject to the trendy theories of modern parenting. If we need to be spanked, it will come, because He loves us too much to let it go.


At the same time, as He issues His warning and the call to repentance, He reminds us: “I’m standing at the door of your heart, calling your name. As soon as you quit shutting Me out, I’ll come in and the fellowship will be sweet once again.”

Lord Jesus, forgive me for shutting You out and ignoring Your loving call to repentance. Give me a heart that responds quickly to Your loving call and trusts in Your promises. Keep me on track, Lord. Whatever it takes. Keep me close. Amen!
