About Town

Revelation 3:20 "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in." Warner Sallman painted a lovely picture of Jesus knocking at a door. There was no door handle. It has been said that this is an example that Jesus doesn't push his way into your heart. One needs to open the door of his or her own heart to Him. One has a choice.
