How to open your heart to Christ
December 1, 2011
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…
There was a sermon preached several years ago by a man named Robert Boyd Monger called My Heart, Christ’s Home. In it, he imagined his heart as being a house with many rooms. And he said that when he invited Jesus into his life, he first met Him in the living room, that place of daily activity. And he gave the Lord the living room of his heart.
On and on they went, through every room in the house, Jesus slowly taking over every aspect of his life. Then Jesus told him, “There’s something that still smells in this house.” He knew immediately what He was talking about… there was a locked closet upstairs no one knew about, and he certainly didn’t want the Lord to see it.
But the Lord said, “I must have that closet.” So he handed over the key and Jesus opened the door. And sure enough, there were those sinful secret habits right there in the closet. The Lord cleansed all of that, took all that out, and said, “Now, I can be at home here.”
As you look at your life, what rooms do you have locked to Jesus? Is it your bedroom, your personal life? Is it your game room, things you enjoy that aren’t pleasing to Him? Or do you have a secret closet that you’re trying to hide? Whatever it is, open the doors of your heart and let Jesus come and dwell there!
WHATEVER AREAS OF YOUR LIFE YOU’RE KEEPING CLOSED TO GOD, GIVE THEM OVER TO HIM AND LET JESUS LIVE IN YOUR HEART!

Discover God’s plan for these last days!
When it comes to thinking about the end times, so many questions come to mind: What are the signs of Christ’s coming? What’s God’s plan for me in these days? Does the nation of Israel play a role?
And while these questions can seem daunting, it’s such comfort to know that God has given you and me everything we need to know right in His Word.
So to help you better understand God’s plan for the last days, I want to send you a special end-times ministry combo pack containing my brand new three-message DVD series filmed in Israel called Israel 2011, along with my ten-message CD series called Signs of the Times.
In Israel 2011, I’ll take you right to where Christ’s greatest miracles took place: the empty tomb, the Sea of Galilee, and the Mount of Olives, where you’ll learn about the eternal importance of this ancient land. And in Signs of the Times, I’ll show you how you can know God’s purpose for you in these uncertain days!
This special end-times combo pack is my gift to thank you for your online donation to support the broadcast ministry of PowerPoint. It’s my prayer that these two powerful resources will help you step into the future with confidence and clarity!
And thank you for your gift to impact more lives with the Good News of Jesus Christ. You are truly a blessing!
