Reflections from Dorrigo LifeSprings church service this week.
“As we spent much time in the presence of God, He caused our hearts to be opened to all that is written.” Agnes Ozman, who asked for and received the baptism of the Spirit on January 1st 1901.
When we open our hearts to Him, He will open our hearts to receive revelation and understanding of “all that is written”. “Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures” Luke 24:45
There is also, now, “a door standing open in heaven.” Revelation 4:1, “an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name” Revelation 3:8
Jesus says “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in” Revelation 3:20. When we open the door and Jesus comes in, He come in trailing the Glory of an open access to the presence of God, an access that He will never deny us.
“You are calling us ever onward, through the open door. The door You opened, the door You will never close. You are calling us ever onward , through that always opening door” A praise prayer from my mum, Beverley, 89 years old, a crazy lover of God and one of the delights of my life.
