Words from the Heart for Saturday February 29th, 2020
He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.”
John 1:51 (NIV)
You Will See Heaven Open
Doors Open Newfoundland and Labrador is a program organized by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Newfoundland Historic Trust, based on the Doors Open Days concept. Doors Open provides an opportunity for citizens and visitors to celebrate the province’s architecture and heritage through the exploration of hidden historical, architectural and cultural gems. Buildings that are normally closed to the public, or which charge an entrance fee, welcome visitors to look around for free.
Everyone who reads the Gospels must wonder from time to time what it must have been like for the early disciples to spend the amount of time with Jesus that they did. The writers tell of amazing things – miracles, healings, the driving out of demons, wisdom like no other, transformational teaching, and power-filled prayer. We just get a glimpse of all that Jesus did during His three and a half years of ministry. It’s no wonder that Jesus told Nathanael, on the day he was called to follow the Master, in John 1:51: “He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.” Nathanael would see “heaven open” every day he was with Jesus. The power of Glory was unleashed every time Jesus reached out in love to meet the needs of someone. We can experience heaven opened every time we reach out to Him as well. He is the unchangeable God, and He still desires to transform our lives and pour out the blessings of heaven into our lives as well. Ask, seek, knock today and the door will open.
These have been words from the heart.
