I remember watching a movie called Dracula 2012. At the point when the vampire was at the intended victim’s door – he had just taken her out and carried her home – she went inside and left the door ajar. When she noticed that he had not come inside, she went back to the door and he looked at her and said “Aren’t you going to invite me in?” No sooner had the words ‘yes come in’ come out of her mouth, while she was still facing the door he appeared behind her from where he seduced her then attacked her.
All that sin wants is an invitation, and this begins with what we think about.
For example, if we continue to entertain thoughts of lust, it leads us to try to find a way to actualize what we are thinking about. It then becomes addictive, and we are unable to escape its clutches.
Sometimes it is the ‘ little sins ‘ that open the door. The ‘little lie’, the stationery that you take from the office without permission for your child’s homework, or the printout of the personal document when you think no one is looking, these are the things that give the enemy a foothold. Once he has a foothold, it is hard for you to close the door, and when you don’t have control of your own door, you have no control about who is let in.
