People have this imagery from Rev 3:20 that Jesus will knock on the door of your heart your whole life until you finally respond.
But beware you don’t open the door to find He’s no longer there.
You must “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” (Isa 55:6)
We need to recognize God’s day of visitation. We need to recognize the appointments God makes with us and get away from the idea that God is just there to be called upon if and when it suits us.
SPIRITUAL TRUTH THAT IS KNOWN BUT NOT ACTED UPON - BRINGS HARDNESS OF HEART.
