Hi! If it’s your first time here, welcome! To others, glad to see you back!
Many of you will remember the song associated with this blog. “The Savior is waiting to enter your heart, why don’t you let Him come in…” (Ralph Carmichael) It has such a beautiful message of hope and promise. If you haven’t heard it, I recommend going to YouTube and listening to the words. Just like Jesus’ character, I find that the music has a gentle sense of wooing and the words hold such promise.
Jesus stands knocking at the door of our hearts waiting for us to let Him come in. He will not come in by force, but waits for an invite, so that He can fulfill all the blessings and promises that come with an abiding relationship with Him (Revelation 3:20) – especially eternal life. Jesus wants to be invited in so that he can abide in us and we in Him. We become His family, His brothers and sisters through the process of abiding in each other (John 8:31). For me, this has become the core essence of my relationship with Jesus. I count on sharing, with Him, first thing in the morning, throughout the day, during worship and Bible study, and bedtime. He abides in me and protects even in my dreams.
Having an abiding relationship with Jesus means I don’t fear current events, I don’t have despair, and I’m not discouraged. Without Jesus, I would be bombarded with all these emotions and much more. He is our Savior first and foremost, but He is also our Advocate, Redeemer, and Friend. Talk about BFFs – Jesus literally is our best friend forever when we invite Him in to dwell in our hearts.
In today’s climate of chaos, disputes, and unrest, many of us are searching for a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. It is natural to worry about what the future holds. But we have options. Because I have found my light in Jesus, I would like to share the chorus to “The Savior is Waiting.” “Time after time He has waited before, and now He is waiting again to see if you’re willing to open the door. Oh won’t you let Him come in.”
Thanks for spending some time with me. I would like to pray for you and hope to see you again soon. Feel free to subscribe, comment, ask questions, leave prayer requests, and share with others.
In these trying times may the grace of God shine upon you and give you peace! (Numbers 6:25)
