He sits by the door

“Just as human affection, when it abounds, overpowers those who love and causes them to be beside themselves, so God’s love for men emptied God (Phil 2.7).  He does not stay in His own place and call the slave, He seeks him in person by coming down to him.  He who is rich reaches the pauper’s hovel, and He displays His love by approaching in person.  He seeks love in return and does not withdraw when He is treated with disdain.  He is not angry over ill treatment, but even when He has been repulsed He sits by the door (cf. Rev 3.20) and does everything to show us that He loves, even enduring suffering and death to prove it.”  (Nicholas Cabasilas)
