A Story for Sunday: "Jesus Likens Salvation"

Jesus Likens Salvation

By Cindy Wyatt

Jesus likens salvation to going through a door

not climbing up some steps or doing anything else before

Jesus likens salvation to entering through a gate

by receiving His gift of mercy and forgiveness so great

Jesus likens salvation to believing on a name,

His name of Jesus, taking away all our guilt and shame

Jesus likens salvation to coming out of darkness into the light

being blind by our sinfulness, but by His grace gives us sight

Jesus likens salvation to being dead and then made alive

dead in our sins, but quickens by His spirit and makes us thrive

Jesus likens salvation to being pulled out of the fire

Faith in His death on the cross and ressurection is all He requires

Jesus likens salvation to being lost and then found

While sinking in the depths of sin, He lifts us up to higher ground

Oh, come to Jesus today if you don't know Him as savior and Lord

He loves you and pleads "open the door" and to His cross look toward

John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and go in and out, and find pasture.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.
Luke 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and was found.
