Knock boldly

Gate to garden

When you stand before His gate, knock loudly and boldly. Do not knock as a beggar knocks, but as one who belongs to the house. Not as a vagabond, who is afraid of the police, but as a friend and an intimate acquaintance. Not as one who is apprehensive of being troublesome, or of coming at an improper time, but as a . . . [son] who may rest assured of a hearty welcome.

–F. W. Krummacher
(1796 – 1868)
