Holman Hunt (English painter 1827-1910) painted the picture “Christ the Light of the World.” It is a painting of Christ in a garden at midnight, holding a lantern in His left hand. With His right hand He is knocking on a heavily paneled door. When the painting was unveiled, several critics were present. One critic detected what he thought was lacking, namely, a knob on the door. He said, “You haven’t finished your work.”
“It is finished,” said the artist.
“But there is no knob on the door,” protested the critic.
“Ah,” said the artist, “that is the door to the human heart. It can be opened only from the inside!”
If you’ve already been browsing our site you may have come across different thoughts, ideas and sayings that perhaps puzzled you. For example quite often we mention the “Words of David”, or Jesus as our Lover, Husband or intimate Friend, we talk about and use the Keys of the Kingdom all the time. In fact there may be a lot of “stuff” we discuss on our site that you’re not familiar with. Well this is because this blog site was designed for missionaries that were once part of an international missionary fellowship called TFI. So you might say this blog is kind of a “in house” publication. But that doesn’t mean you’re not welcome, in fact you are very welcome.
We’ve opened this portal for you.
The very best way to get to know us is to get to know Jesus through a deeper more personal relationship, a relationship that just going to church or fellowship once or twice a week doesn’t give. Filling your life with things the rest of the week won’t give it either, friends, money, vacations, you name it, they just don’t work the way Jesus works. The simple reason for this is because the things of this world only satisfy your flesh (temporarily). But Jesus can satisfy both, eternally. The principal is scriptural.
John 4:13, 14 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
As we said earlier, you are most welcome to browse our blog site. However if you would like to go a little slower and get to know and experience the Jesus that perhaps you’ve never truly met and at the same time be brought up to speed with the unfamiliar topics on our site, then join our 12 Foundation Stones course. We don’t really like to call it a course; in reality it’s an adventure through, or into, the Word of God-Jesus! Getting into the Word is getting into Jesus, learning about and experiencing His Spirit, the vastness and depth of the Spirit of God, love! True love, God’s love is what truly satisfies that longing of every human heart. That is what the woman at the well in John 4 was looking for and that is what you and I are searching for too.
We love you, because Jesus loves you! It’s as simple as that.
