Someone is Knocking At Your Heart's Door
I. Who is Knocking?
"Behold I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him and he with me."
by Max Walker
II. Why Does Jesus Knock?
IV. What Should You Do After Opening Your Heart's Door to Jesus?
"If thou shalt confess with they mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shall be saved." Romans 10:9
Meaning: At some time in every life Jesus Christ knocks at the door. The line of communication between God and man is such that one knows the knock is Jesus. For some it may come early and for some later but the knock will come to all as Jesus seeks to enter every life.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
Meaning: Everyone has fallen short of what God expects of them.
"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way." Isaiah 53:6
Meaning: Everyone is self-willed and rebellious toward God.
"Your iniquities have separated between you and your God." Isaiah 59:2
Meaning: Your sins have formed a barrier between you and God.
Meaning: God loves you in spite of your sins and sent His only beloved Son to die for you that you could be saved. Jesus is knocking at your heart's door because you have sinned against God and He wants to come into your life and to save you from your sins now.
III. What Will You Do About His Knock?
"It is time to seek the Lord." Hosea 10:12
Meaning: You can be saved this very moment. Now is the time to open the door of your heart and Jesus will come in.
"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."
Meaning: Due to the uncertainty of life it is dangerous not to open your heart to Jesus today.
"Repent of your sins." Luke 13:3
"Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
Meaning: If you will ask Jesus to save you and trust in Him, He will save you now.
I ask you now to receive Christ into your life. Let me suggest a prayer for you.
Lord, I confess my sins unto you and at this moment ask you to come into my life and to cleanse me from my sins. Thank you Lord for fulfilling your promise to save me. Lord, I also ask you to help me live for you.
Meaning: Unless you are sorry for your sins against God and are willing to turn from your sins and follow Jesus you will be lost in your sins forever.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved." Acts 16:31
Meaning: If you will answer the knock of Jesus at your heart's door and believe on Him, He will save you from your sins right this very moment.
Meaning: It is important to confess Jesus before others. One of the best ways is to go before others and acknowledge that you have trusted in Him and that you are not ashamed of Him.
"Christ loved the church and gave himself for it." Ephesians 5:25
Meaning: As a Christian you should seek to join yourself to the body of Christ which is the church.
"Repent and be baptized." Acts 2:38
Meaning: When you open your heart to Jesus and believe on Him that you should follow Him in Scriptural baptism. Any Bible believing church will require baptism for membership.
