The Cross and The Stone
When we truly come to the cross of Christ Jesus, We immediately discover most profoundly that we are naked and wretched and helplessly, hopelessly lost. It's precisely at that moment we surrender our life gladly and agree with God's word and admit we are lost sinners, we confess and weep, we repent, saying we are so sorry and so undeserving. And then we ask like a child would ask, we ask Jesus to have mercy on us and save us, to be our savior . And at that moment we are saved, born again and are new creations in Christ Jesus our Lord.
"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." (Revelation 3:20)
"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter." (Revelation 4:1)
