The Guest of Honor
I heard Him knocking at my heart’s door,
I opened it a crack, and saw it was the Lord.
He told me, what He did to set me free,
I listened, to Him politely.
I opened a little wider, to hear what He would say.
However, for a few times; I would ask Him to go away.
Then one day, I was sad and lonely, and I opened up to Him.
He was the Guest of Honor and I listened closely again.
He assured me what He said was the truth.
He also said, there was nothing else I needed to do.
He came back often and I began to see,
That this once stranger, was becoming more and more to me
One day the thought of Him leaving, caused me great pain,
Then, I asked the Guest of Honor to remain.
He said, if I would repent and believe in all He has done,
Not only would He remain, Him and I would become as one.
Now, I live with Him, and in me, He abides.
My guest now owns all I am; He is my dearest friend inside.
Because of the great work He did upon the cross for me,
He will raise me up to be with Him, for all eternity.
I will not enter heaven as guest of honor, but as His bride.
I am so glad I repented of my sins, and invited Him inside!
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.
