A Saving Faith

It is a new year and many are likely 'doing daily devotionals' as part of their New Year's Resolutions.

The picture posted today is the famous painting by William Holman Hunt titled "Light of the World".

It is Christ standing at the door and knocking.

The picture illustrates Revelation 3:20: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me".  

According to Wikipedia, Hunt said: "…The door in the painting has no handle, and can therefore be opened only from the inside, representing 'the obstinately shut mind' "

The DIT for today is a Daily Devotional written by Dr. Charles Stanley of In Touch Ministries.

It builds on that theme of an individual needing to open the door to their heart and mind and let Christ enter.

This very brief devotional is definitely something to consider and ponder.
