Let Christ In

The LORD’S imminence is at the door. And He bids us, “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners, and purify your hearts ye doubleminded” (James 4:8). To be doubleminded is to be lukewarm: claiming to be of God, but partaking in the world. This is the condition of the Laodicean church (Revelation 3:16). So to amend this, the writer of James exhorts us to purify our hearts. Now, the Hebrew word used for hearts in James 4:8 is chânûwth, meaning, “a vault or cell (with an arch); by impl. a prison:– cabin” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance: Complete and Unabridged, #2588). In other words, we need to unlock our hearts to Jesus so He can work a complete transformation in us. Those of us who have the Word, of God must allow it to marinate every part of our mind and lives. Our Savior says, “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” (Revelation 3:20).

Let’s let Christ in.

Amen.
