have been doing to what Christ
has done for you on the cross.
It means, next, that you
RECEIVE THE RESURRECTED, LIVING
CHRIST into your life as SAVIOR.
He says, Behold, I stand at the door and
knock [at the door of your life].
If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him.
It means further that you RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE
AS LORD .
He comes as Master and King. There is a throne room in your heart, and that
throne is rightly His. He made you. He bought you and He wants to take His
rightful place on the throne of your life. It means, finally, that you REPENT
OF YOUR SINS. That means that you are willing to turn from anything you
have been doing that is not pleasing to Him and to follow Him as He reveals
His will to you in His Word.

really want ...
