Peepholes are kind of cool. Instead of seeing what is directly in front of the door you get to see all around the door and porch area. It may be called a “fish eye’s” view? Some cameras have a similar, attachable lens. The point is though, the peephole provides a secured view of who is at the door, but the truth is, it’s a distorted view.
People sometimes will look at their world, and other people, in a distorted way as well. Things that have happened to them in the past, their upbringing, and other people’s opinions affect the view. This can cause some to have trouble trusting, or believing people. Sad, but this distorted view can also be applied when Jesus shows up.
Jesus says in Rev. 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (NKJV)
You notice Jesus doesn’t barge in or break the door down? He’s a gentleman. He comes to you, where you are, because he knows you, sees you, and even knows what is happening in your life. Yet, he waits for you to invite him into your life. He knows how much you need him, but he still gives you a choice, free will. Unless you are willing to let go of your peephole perspective, and give Jesus a chance, you will never know perfect love. A love that can help you overcome, anything!
