A Spiritual Exercise: Opening the Door

Spiritual exercise for children for Christmas - opening the door of your heart

Examine the door upon which Jesus is knocking. There is no handle. It symbolizes the door of your heart, which can only be opened from the inside. Have you opened your life to Jesus? He will not force His way in. You must open the door yourself.

“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.” (Revelation 3:20)

If you have invited Jesus into your life, how welcome do you make Him feel? What place do you give Him now?

To help you answer this question, think about the other members of your household. You greet them in the morning. You are considerate of their happiness and comfort. When friends visit, you introduce them. You sit together and talk. You eat at the same table. How rude it would be to ignore them or to forget their presence.

As you remember Jesus’ birth this month, think about the place that Jesus has in the house of your life.

La parábola del tesoro escondido

El reino del cielo es como un tesoro escondido que un hombre descubrió en un campo. En medio de su entusiasmo, lo escondió nuevamente y vendió todas sus posesiones a fin de juntar el dinero suficiente para comprar el campo.
