He counted me faithful,
putting me into the ministry.
When Jesus Comes to Your Heart (Sermon Outline)
When Jesus Comes to Your Heart
Revelation 3:14-22 (Text v.20)
"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."
(Sermon notes minus illustrations)
Intro.: It must have been twenty or more years ago I heard these words "If Jesus came to your house" -- words of a song/poem -- "I wonder what you’d do". But, oh dear people, the Bible says that Jesus is the “light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world”. Therefore, I say, when Jesus comes to your heart, I wonder what you will do!
I. When the Redeemer Comes to Your Heart
Among other things He comes as:
A. The Son of God
B. Your Sacrifice for Sin
C. Your Savior -- He stands ready to save you from all your sins, guilt & shame
D. The Suitor of Your Heart -- He knocks with patient love
E. The Song of Your Soul -- If only you let Him in, you’ll never be sorry!
II. He Has Requirements for You to Meet
Conditions you must meet with your heart:
A. Observe -- give Him your attention
1. Behold as He stands before your heart’s door
2. Listen as He Knocks & Speaks
B. Obey -- “If any man will ...” --
be obedient to His voice, simply and completely obey
C. Open -- “... open the door” --
accept Him in whatever way He chooses to come in -- by faith -- simple -- so simple a child may be saved! Just let Him come into your heart.
III. He Wants a Relationship with You!
Once you let Him in, you will notice:
A. His Coming -- “When Jesus comes ...” -- His mighty instantaneous transformation of your heart, darkness turned to light, sin to righteousness, sorrow into joy,
B. His Company -- “Lo, I am with you alway” -- walking with Him
C. His Communion -- talking with Him
Prayer, a two-way means of communication -- He talks to your heart as you talk to Him.
Conclusion: It is so simple, so right, and so rewarding to open your heart’s door and let the Savior, Jesus Christ, come in to transform and to stay. Why don’t you do it today?
