31st December 2018 Monday 7th Day in the Octave of Christmas
1 John 2:18-21, John 1:1-18
“To receive or not to receive!”
Life is full of choices. In today’s Gospel, we are told that there were some people who chose to reject Jesus while others opened their hearts and received Him.
“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.” (Revelation 3:20)
When we open the door and let Jesus into our life, His presence will affect our whole life: our hobbies, the way we utilize time, our usage of internet websites, or relationships with friends and family, etc.
This New Year’s Eve, Jesus stands at our door. He knocks. He waits. We have a choice. If we want a purposeful life, then we need to receive Jesus and welcome Him today.
Question for reflection:
1) What is Jesus’ invitation to me today?
