"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Rev. 3:20). . . . His coming will he in many ways and under many guises. If we do not recognize His knock and answer its summons to open, He will go away. With divine patience He will come again and again though repeatedly rebuffed. . . .

Will we deny any man the full measure of justice for which he appeals and to which he is entitled? Will we turn indifferently away from those who are weary with life's endless labors .... frustrations and failures? Will we remain unmoved and aloof in the presence of sorrow and suffering, and pass by on the other side? Will we respect the admonition to love our enemies, bless them who curse us, do good unto those who hate us, and pray for them who despitefully use us and persecute us? In all these circumstances Christ comes to our door and knocks. Will we let Him go away an unheeded caller?
