The Heavenly Beggar 
Revelation 3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock
Oh, ponder again these words and learn from them My great humility. 
There is that gracious invitation, too, for those who yearn to realize a happiness, a rest, a satisfaction they have never found in the world and in its pursuits. To them the pleading answer to their quest is, "Come to Me and I will give you rest." But to those who do not feel their need of Me, who obstinately reject Me, who shut their doors of their hearts so that I may not enter; to these I go, in tender, humble longing. Even when I find all closed, all barred, I stand at Beggar; knocking, knocking. The Heavenly Beggar in His Great Humility"-Russell
