Jesus Christ Knocks At The Door Of Your Heart

    We all know what it is to have someone knock at our door. It might be someone delivering a pizza. It might be a representative of a church or other religious organization. It might be someone running for political office. It might be a friend or relative. It might be someone else. But when we hear the knock on our door, we have a choice to make: open it, or keep it shut. If we open it, we must make another decision: let them in, or keep them out.
     In a spiritual way, Jesus Christ knocks at our heart’s door when we hear the Gospel message. This message is summed up in John 3:16, which says this: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Romans 6;23 says this: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” We will perish in our sins, unless we accept the gift God offers us. This gift is received when we open the door of our hearts to Jesus Christ and receive him as our Savior.
    This truth of the Gospel was well-expressed many years ago in a poem by Ina Duley Ogdon. It was set to music, and has been sung by many thousands of persons, maybe millions, over the years. Her poem is titled “You Must Open The Door.” It is presented here for your thoughtful consideration. Please read it carefully, and then do what it says.
You Must Open The Door
By Ina Duley Ogden
 
There’s a Savior who stands at the door of your heart.
He is longing to enter — why let Him depart?
He has patiently called you so often before,
But you must open the door.
     You must open the door.You must open the door.
     When Jesus comes in, He will save you from sin.
     But you must open the door.
He has come from the Father, salvation to bring,
And his name is called Jesus, Redeemer and King.
To save you and keep you He pleads evermore.
But you must open the door.
     You must open the door.You must open the door.
     When Jesus comes in, He will save you from sin.
     But you must open the door.
He is loving and kind, full of infinite grace.
In your heart, in your life, will you give Him a place?
He is waiting to bless you, your soul to restore.
But you must open the door.
     You must open the door.You must open the door.
     When Jesus comes in, He will save you from sin.
     But you must open the door.
He will lead you at last to that blessed abode,
To the city of God at the end of the road,
Where the night never falls, when life’s journey is o’er.
But you must open the door.
     You must open the door.You must open the door.
     When Jesus comes in, He will save you from sin.
     But you must open the door.
