Be Ready to Listen and Heed

Revelation 3:20 AMPC … Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me.

Be ready
Stay alert and keep watch
Listen for the knock at the door
Be quick to open the door
His sheep{servants} know His voice –
Jn 10:4
And will not follow another … –
Jn 10:5

Luke 12:35-37 AMPC … Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning, 36 And be like men who are waiting for their master to return home from the marriage feast, so that when he returns from the wedding and comes and knocks, they may open to him immediately. 37 Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those servants whom the master finds awake and alert and watching when he comes. Truly I say to you, he will gird himself and have them recline at table and will come and serve them!

From NetBible Lk 12:35

  • Keep your lamps burning =  * be ready at all times
    *Clarke: Let the candle of the Lord be always found burning brightly in your hand.

    Two way communication!

    Matthew 7:7-8 AMPC … Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
