Open Your Hearts

In this song, Jesus is speaking, and he is asking us to open our hearts to him, and to invite him into our hearts. He is not only saying this to those who don’t know him, but he is saying this to those who think they know him or to those who do know him but have closed their hearts off to his voice. He is asking that we come and follow him and obey his teachings, for he is our only hope of salvation and eternal life with God.

I think sometimes we can get so caught up in our own lives, or even in Christian ministry, that we don’t really spend the time with our Lord in listening to his words speak to our hearts words of encouragement, direction, correction and/or instruction. We may think we are living the Christian life just fine, but we are still so worldly and so focused on ourselves and on our pleasure and comfort instead of us listening to his voice and doing what he wants. So, he is calling us to open our hearts to him, to listen, and then to obey him.

Open Your Hearts / An Original Work / September 11, 2011

Open your hearts to Me.
Will you not receive me?
I’m your Lord and Savior, Jesus,
I am King of kings.
Listen to Me speaking to you.
Invite Me within.

Hasten to Me calling.
I’ll keep you from falling.
I am with you, and I will
Abide with you always.
Repent of your sins and
Worship Jesus Christ today.

Come and follow your Lord.
Obey all His teachings.
Witness to your neighbors,
And tell them of Jesus Christ.
Let them know that He provided
Their sin’s sacrifice.

He is your deliv’rer;
Rock of your salvation;
Cornerstone, rejected by men,
Mighty God is He.
He will give the only hope
Of life eternally.
