Open your heart and let him in.  God will remove all your sorrow and sin.
He may not pass this way again so open your heart and let him in.
Take his hand; take his nailed-scared hand. Let him show you the way.
Jesus will be your dearest friend so open your heart and let him come in.

This is a simple song that has been around for many years.  It has a simple message.
It is a call to the mind and heart; to the real you. It is not something to join or a new set of rules to keep. Take a step and open you heart and come to Christ.  The promise is clear; God will give you peace and remove your sin that separates from God.  I can speak as one, along with many others, who have had this promise fulfilled.

God is bringing this to your attention today; so you will act on his promise.  We can get caught up and stay busy with so many activities in our lives, so when a message reminds you of God’s wonderful promise; now, when reminded, is the time to act. Life is fragile, we need to respond to God’s invitation now, so we are ready for the great day of judgment.

It is clear in the song; so you know whose hand to take.  It is nail-scared!  He went to a cross and died in your place.  He is the only savior.  He also will be the good shepherd to show you the best way for your life, and lead the way.  Jesus will be your friend. He will teach you, help you and stand by you in troubled times. He will not leave or forsake you.

So the invitation goes out again this morning to all who read this short article.  Jesus Christ is the way back to God.  He is the only way.  Step out, take God’s way and come to Christ.
