“You have a choice-every moment of every day. The key to a life worth living is to change your perspective from inward to outward, from giving up to giving back, from closing our minds to opening our hearts….” That is part of an insightful statement in “Chicken Soup For the Soul by writer Katrina Willis. It is good advice for us all, especially the part that encourages us to open our hearts. Not only should we open our hearts to others, but also open our hearts to the dear Saviour, the Lord Jesus. He invites us to open our hearts to Him with the words, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” And He also said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” But as Katrina Willis reminded us, “You have a choice.” We are never forced to open our lives to Him. But the moment we do, He promises, “Him (or her) who comes to me, I will in no way cast out.” That’s a minute of truth !
