A HIDDEN MESSAGE FOR THE NEW YEAR   
ONLINE TITLE: A HIDDEN MESSAGE FOR 2024
JEDI KIM | DECEMBER 31, 2023

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
Revelation 3:14-20 (NIV)

But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
Revelation 3:17b (NIV)

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
Revelation 3:20 (NIV)

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL INVITATION OF FRIENDSHIP, MUTUALITY, CONNECTION, AND LOVE.
 
WHEN WE DRIFT IN LIFE, JESUS DOESN’T GIVE US JUDGMENT, HE OFFERS US RELATIONSHIP. 
 
1. AN INVITATION TO SEE GOD DIFFERENTLY
 
GOD DOESN’T WANT RELIGION. HE WANTS RELATIONSHIP.
 
2. AN INVITATION TO SEE OURSELVES CLEARLY

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” —St. Augustine in Confessions

3. AN INVITATION TO A DIFFERENT KIND OF LIFE

“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”
Revelation 3:20 (NLT)

SURRENDER IS THE KEY THAT OPENS THE DOOR TO RELATIONSHIP.
