RECEIVE GOD’S INVITATION - Max Lucado

You are invited! Jesus gives the invitation in Revelation 3:20, “Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.”  To know God is to receive his invitation.  Not just to hear it, not just to study it, not just to acknowledge it, but to receive it.  It’s possible to learn much about God’s invitation and never respond to it personally.

His invitation is clear and non-negotiable. He gives all and we give him all.  Simple and absolute. Isn’t it incredible that God leaves this choice to us?  Think about it.  We can’t choose the weather.  We can’t control the economy.  But we can choose where we spend eternity.

The big choice, God leaves to us.  The critical decision is ours.  What are you doing with God’s invitation?  What are you doing with his personal request that you live with him forever?
