He is Here (Revelation 3:20)

jesus-knocks

Forgotten first love, our hunger is lacking

We’ve left Him adrift in a sea of disdain

He stands at the door, awaiting the asking.

 

We no longer see what with Him we obtain

The Vine feeds the branch, but we want our poison

We’ve left Him adrift in a sea of disdain.

 

Hold tight to the Vine, we’ll rejoice in union

Yet faith is belief, expecting in unseen

The Vine feeds the branch, but we want our poison.

 

We say we want God, but there’s dogma between

He longs to come and with us break bread

Yet faith is belief expecting in unseen.

 

If we’d just focus on seeking him instead

The door only opens from inside to out

He longs to come in and with us break bread.

 

We’re filled with self-made doctrine leading to doubt

Forgotten first love, our hunger is lacking

The door only opens from inside out

He stands at the door, awaiting the asking.

  1. “If we’d just focus on seeking him instead
    The door only opens from inside to out
    He longs to come in and with us break bread.”

    Amen, Susan. Perfectly stated. As Paul said, “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (Rom.10:8) He’s not outside, waiting for us to say the right words. He’s inside, waiting for us to respond to His invitation to Fellowship.
