Knock Knock

Okay, we probably don’t want to admit we have them, but we do. Don’t we all have one knock, knock joke that cracks us up at least a little? Mine?

“Knock, knock.”

“Who’s there?”

“Interrupting cow.”



You have to admit, that’s good stuff.

But do you know what’s better than the best knock, knock joke? A knock, knock TRUTH. What an amazing truth it is! It’s the incredible truth that the Creator of the universe knocks! Revelation 3:20 reminds us of his gracious tap on our hearts: “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 him, and he with me.” (NIV)

In the bigger picture, Jesus knocks on the door of his church. He desires to have the sweetest fellowship with the people he died to save. It’s almost too wonderful to believe that he wants to live with us in the most personal way, but it really is his knock, knock truth.

How many believers does it take to open the door? (No, that’s not a segue into light bulb jokes.) The fact is, it takes one. One person who will open the door and let Christ rule will make a difference in the entire church–and in the entire world.

Make a difference. Be the one. Answer the door.

And let’s not get distracted by any interruptions–we need stay focused until the cows come home.
