Yesterday I tried to attend a Baptist church that was listed in a church directory, but when I finally found the building it had been absorbed by another denomination. Thinking the Baptist had moved to another location I tried the phone number, which I discovered had been disconnected. I now have an inkling of how the Lord feels when He knocks on the door of an individual’s heart and finds no one home and no forwarding address. The Lord said to the church Laodicea, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me” (Rev 3:20 NIV).
