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.

Sit down as friends.
Friend of God.
Finish with Mt. 7:21-23… know him, does he know you? Is there a relationship there?
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?‘ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from M e , you who practice lawlessness .’ Matthew 7:21-23 NASB http://bible.com/100/mat.7.21-23.NASB
Is your name written there in The Lambs book of life? (Rev. 3:5)
Today, while we are alive, is the day to consider that God is knocking & someday death will be knocking. It is unavoidable. What we see and have will all pass away, then what?
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:12-15 NASB http://bible.com/100/rev.20.12-15.NASB
