DOORWAYS


LOST LITTLE SHEEP HOW WE ROAM,
JESUS CALLS, CHILD COME HOME.
WHEN YOU THINK YOU NEED NOTHING MORE,
LO, THERE IS A KNOCKING AT THE DOOR.

WOULD YOU LET JESUS IN?
REGARDLESS OF YOUR SIN.
WOULD YOU ACCEPT HIS HEAVENLY TREASURE?
OR CLING TO WORLDLY PLEASURE?

AT THE DOOR HE STANDS AND KNOCKS,
IT IS OK, YOU CAN UNDO THE LOCKS.
IS YOUR HEAD HUNG IN SHAME?
AS HE WHISPERS YOUR NAME.
BEHOLD CHRIST IS AT THE DOOR,
WHY DO YOU COWER ON THE FLOOR?

IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE TO CRY OUT TO JESUS FOR MERCY, BUT IT SEEMS TO TAKE A LIFETIME OF SIN TO JUST TAKE A MINUTE. AS FOR ME IT WAS A LONG AND TREACHEROUS JOURNEY, FILLED WITH DRUGS, ALCOHOL, SELF MUTILATION, ONE NIGHT STANDS AND SO ON AND SO ON, THE LIST OF SINS SEEMS ENDLESS. MANY TIMES HE STOOD AND KNOCKED AT MY DOOR, BUT THE SINS OF MY LIFE DULLED THE SOUNDS OF HIM KNOCKING. HOWEVER, EACH TIME HE CAME AND KNOCKED THE LOUDER THE KNOCKING BECAME. THEN THE DAY CAME WHEN THE KNOCKING DROWNED OUT THE SINS OF MY LIFE AND I OPENED THAT DOOR, AND THERE STOOD JESUS… “CHILD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” HE ASKS. I HAD NO ANSWER ONLY TEARS AS I FELL TO MY KNEES AND CRIED FOR MERCY. AS I DID, JESUS KNELT NEXT TO ME WITH HIS NAIL PIERCED HANDS UPON ME AND SAID, “CHILD YOU ARE MINE AND I DO FORGIVE YOU, COME AND I WILL SHOW YOU MANY THINGS.”
LIFE SEEMS TO TRY AND CLOUD OUR JUDGMENTS AND OUR THINKING. JESUS NEVER SAID THE PATH WOULD BE EASY, JUST WORTH IT. HE NEVER ASKS US TO BE PERFECT, FOR HE KNOWS WE NEVER CAN BE. SO, THERE MUST BE A CONSTANT LINE OF COMMUNICATION WITH GOD. JUST TAKE A MINUTE TO ASK GOD FOR MERCY AND THEN YOU TOO MIGHT HEAR HIM KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR…
