This is someone's front door in Andersonville, Chicago. It seems to say, We are happy to have guests! It is inviting but yet, if I was to go to the door, the people behind it would give me a blank stare, because they haven`t the foggiest notion who I am. Things aren't always as they seem, are they? Maybe they would look out at me, and not even open the door.

There has to be relationship in order to be asked in. Someone had to invest some time into knowing who I am. It had to cost them time and effort at some level to seek me out. Of course it's the same with Jesus. He wants us to come in, but we have to be known by Him before His door will open to us. He exerted all the energy He could possibly have had to make the door open. He did the work, all we have to do is realize it. " Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!   {Matthew 7:7-11}  He is a good good Father!
