Come into my heart, O Lord Jesus

Come into my heart, O Lord Jesus,
Come into my heart, I pray;
My soul is so troubled and weary,
Come into my heart, today.
  Into my heart, into my heart,
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus;
Come in today, come in to stay,
  Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Come into my heart, O Lord Jesus,
I need Thee through life's dreary way;
The burden of sin is so heavy,
Come into my heart to stay.
Come into my heart, O Lord Jesus,
Now cleanse and illumine my soul;
Fill me with Thy wonderful Spirit,
Come in and take full control.

My oldest grandchildren come from a broken marriage ( ages 17 & twins 14 ) they’ve not been in Church since they were like 6 & 3. 😢 - they live 5 1/2 hours away from us - I pray for them daily, send text messages of Jesus love & need for Salvation, Favorite Hymns of mine ( their all in music 🎶 either playing the Violin, Viola or singing in a chorus group so I know they all can read music - my prayer with the hymns - is their get curious and want to know what the music sounded like! The other night when I was praying for them this little childhood chorus came to mind- I’ll send the words - just wish I could have them hear the music! I never knew there were verses! Such love comes through this precious chorus, I pray it softens their hearts and they’ll come to know Jesus - HE IS. COMING SOON - & I WANT MY FAMILY CIRCLE UNBROKEN!


Come into my heart Lord Jesus ❤️🙏

In prayer this morning Jesus brought back to mind this simple and beautiful prayer for my salvation I prayed when I was six years old. I’m now 65 and in tears, weeping with gratitude and thankful for all the years of His goodness and grace and love that has transformed my life. It’s been a long journey, but worth it! Praise to you Lord Christ! Amen

This song came into my heart today, but I realized that I had forgotten much of the lyrics.

My heart soared as I read the words & heard the music. Thank you for your service and may God be with you for all your days.

Thus far, we have seen the Christ revealed in Colossians mainly in a doctrinal way. Now we need to see the experience of this Christ. Colossians 2:6-7 says, "As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, having been rooted and being built up in Him, and being established in the faith even as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." We need to consider what it means to receive Christ. We received Christ when we opened our being, repented, confessed our sins to Him, and said, "Lord Jesus, I believe into You. Please come into me." When we are newly saved, we may not know that Christ is the life-giving Spirit or that we have a human spirit. We may pray, "Lord Jesus, come into my heart." There is even a popular gospel hymn that says, "Into my heart, into my heart, / Come into my heart, Lord Jesus" (Hymns, #1061). This song is good, but it is not entirely accurate. Second Timothy 4:22a says, "The Lord be with your spirit." It does not say, "The Lord be with your heart." The Lord first comes into our spirit. Ephesians 3:17a speaks of Christ making His home in our heart. After coming into our spirit, Christ gradually makes His home in our heart.

Our spirit may be likened to the living room in a home, and our heart may be likened to the bedroom, the inner chamber. When an unfamiliar guest comes to visit us for a short time, we may welcome him into our living room. However, when an intimate acquaintance comes to stay for several days, we will show him to a bedroom and tell him to feel at home. Regrettably, many of us have received the Lord only into our living room, our spirit. We have not ushered Him into our inner chamber, our heart.

We have received Christ into our spirit, and He now desires to spread into the parts of our heart. The four parts of our heart are our mind, emotion, will, and conscience. Christ is spreading from our spirit in the center of our being to the surrounding parts of our mind, emotion, and will. The Christ whom we have received is not far away, like money in a bank account. Rather, Christ is in our spirit, spreading into our heart. When Christ has spread into all our inward parts, He will be settled in our heart, having made His home in our heart.
