Jesus Wants to be at Home in Our HeartS
Jesus in the synagogue at Nazareth said to the people that no prophet is ever accepted in his own native place like Elijah and Elisha. Jesus also who is a native of Nazareth was also rejected by the people of his own native place.
Jesus really wants to be at home in our hearts because your hearts and mine is his own native place, even though he knows that he might be rejected, still he tries in every moment to remain in our hearts. Maybe our reason for not accepting Jesus in our hearts is that many times we don’t want to listen to the truth because it is hard to accept.
The invitation of Jesus is for us to listen to Him. Listen to everything He wants to say to us and welcome Him into our hearts. God is saying to us all the things and all the truth we need to know. Sometimes we are thinking that we might not able to bear it but let’s trust God and let him live inside our hearts and he will be the one to give us strength so that we will become free and we continue our mission as disciples: to knock each and everyone’s hearts so that they will welcome Jesus.
