Don’t leave Him locked out!

Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me (Revelation 3:20)

JP: Jay Adams on Revelation 3:20. The key thought is that this verse has often been used incorrectly as a salvation verse.

Please Come In


This isn’t a gospel invitation, even though the painters and many preachers treat it so. It is Jesus speaking to the members of a church that has locked Him out!


What a powerful figure it is.

Do you belong to such a church?

Will you open the door?

Will you cast off your lukewarmness, and sit down with Him at the table He will spread for you?

That table is His Word. In it you will find fellowship with Him and food for your soul. Then, having eaten. Get up, talk to the others in your congregation about the situation and, together, do something about it.


In verse 19, He tells you—repent.

If you do your church can be changed. And if He is outside the door, it surely needs to be.
