‘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 that person, and they with me.’
Revelation 3:20 (NIV)

Our Lord Jesus desires a close relationship with us. He wants to spend time with us. May this year for you be one of intimacy with Jesus!

Thank you also for praying for those who don’t yet hear Jesus’ invitation in a language that they understand.
