It was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman he grew up with another village where he worked in the carpenter shop until he was 30. Then for three years is a wandering preacher. He never wrote a book you never held a political office. He never owned a house he never traveled more than 200 miles from the place where he was born is only 33 when the tide of public opinion turned against him.

His friends run away is turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.

He was nailed to a cross between two thieves while he was dying. His executioners gambled for his clothing. The only property owners when he was dead.

He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pretty of a friends 20 centuries of come and gone. Today he remains the central figure of the human race.

All the armies that ever marched all the navies that ever sailed all the parliaments that ever sat all the kings of Evergreen put together have not affected the life of man on this planet so much is that one solitary life, but who is who is Jesus to the church door is a brilliant teacher of the golden rule to the liberal theologian.

He is the embodiment of the best that is in all of us to the non-Christian is a great example of love to oppressed people. He's a first century freedom fighter to the theater door and he is Jesus Christ superstar to the student. He's a killjoy who stops us having fun.

The salesperson is the ultimate motivator to the new age.

He is the path to enlightenment. But again, ask who is he who is Jesus that question. Who is Jesus is the most important question you could ever ask and answer and to answer that question. Who is he who is Jesus returning to the authentic Jesus yesterday Jesus of the Bible in our Scripture today as we continue our study of Matthew's gospel the Lord Jesus is in the north of Israel place called Caesarea Philippi sometime in which a pagan influences today. You can still see the cave where the Greek God plan was said to be born.

Lord willing, have the privilege of leading a group to Israel in October we will go to Caesarea Philippi and will see that cave and it is their right. In the north of Israel Caesarea Philippi where Jesus asked his disciples to questions. First question is who do people say that the Son of Man is bigger very sensors John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. Jesus is a prophet but is much more than a prophet but then Jesus asked the disciples this question. This question I'm asking you over your who do you say that on this question. The central question darting through the history of this world comes to you and me afresh today.

Who do you say that I am who is Jesus very personal question. Let's read our Bibles.

Matthew chapter 16 I'm reading from verse 13 in this very very important passage of Scripture.

Nobody controversial passage of Scripture as we will see Matthew chapter 16 verse 13 now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, who do people say that the Son of Man is on the said some say John the Baptist others say Elijah and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets, he said to them, but who do you say that I am Simon Peter replied, you are the Christ, the son of the living God and Jesus answered them blessed their use Simon bar Jonah for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my father was in heaven. And I tell you you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven than he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ Jesus, who is a Jesus is the Christ the son of the living God.

Yes Jesus is the Messiah return is the Christ, Chris Dawes and Greek and Peter, the leader of the 12 always mentioned first in the list of the disciples Peter who is the spokesman answers Jesus question, but who do you say that I am Peter replies 16 you are the Christ, the son of the living God.

This is divine revelation. Jesus is selling Peter he said flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my father who is in heaven. This is divine revelation given from heaven to that Peter can say is you look so Jesus this man. He's followed now for some time.

He says you are the Christ of the Messiah son of the living God. This term Messiah Chris Dawes in Greek means the anointed one. We saw Jesus at his baptism earlier in the gospel as the Holy Spirit descends on him in the form of a dove is anointed by the Holy Spirit at his baptism Peter in acts chapter 10 verse 38 says to Cornelius pagan centurion that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power that is with arrive with the arrival of Jesus, the great messianic age has no known Jewish nation are looking for the Messiah. Israel is looking for Messiah King promised and second Samuel seven the king whose throne shall be established forever ball of Israel is looking for the Messiah to come.

Messiah, who they think will throw the Roman power will get rid of the Gentile oppression will eliminate the Jewish nation and establish the great messianic kingdom on earth Messiah's throne, his temple will be in Jerusalem at the very center of the world, and the realization of Israel's hope of a Messiah as prophesied in the Old Testament finds its fulfillment in Jesus.

So the question who is Jesus one very good answer would be, is the long-awaited redo muddies the Savior is the king is the anointed one.

Jesus is the Christ is the Messiah. You believe that you believe that this mind this historical man, a man who actually live far 33 to 36 years that this man who I believe is the central figure of human history that he in fact is the Christ the King. The King of Kings and Lord of lords.

If that is true as I'm saying it is we all our total regions and allegiance to this one now the first century is receiving someone to use the Messiah for their own selfish ends. Political power material benefit. This one can feed you with loaves and fishes. This would be a nice one to follow similar in the 21st century. Many wonder Christ.

Many wonder Jesus who does what we want him to do was there to make life more comfortable for us a Jesus who will help us to fulfill our dreams almost blasphemous.

As we finite human beings. Spikes in the universe would want the world to revolve around us that Jesus is all about helping me get through life where he learned next week. Lord willing, that following this one. Following this Jesus whom Peter says is the Christ the son of the living God, then this one includes suffering. It includes self-denial and perhaps even dead.

Yes these men who stand to make this magnificent confession as led by their spokesman Peter.

Some of them can be very killed for their faith as they follow the Messiah, such as their commitment to this point as we saw last week. The disciples concept of the Messiah didn't include suffering and death.

That wasn't the kind of Messiah they wanted they wanted a political figure, yes it is wonderful that he could heal wonderful that he could teach where they wanted him to overthrow the powers the Gentiles under setup. There the very throne of David and the temple there in Jerusalem. But Jesus Jesus is explains saw last week that he must go to Jerusalem that he must suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, I'm quoting from verse 21 and became older and on the third day rise again. I was hard for them hard for us to think that this one who we are following is going to a life of suffering-self-denial possible that is what he means. Apologies disease a Christ is the Messiah. He's the anointed one. He is the king not only seen the Messiah as Peter says you are the son of the living God, what a state not just profit coming from God's Islam would say no is the son of the living God. He is God the son, the son of God, and God the son sang about the Trinity in the new song. This is in Jesus Christ is God incarnate the Word becoming flesh and dwelling among us who are you to get the Christ, who are you the son of the living God, and we really heard that supernatural confirmation from heaven with Jesus was baptized, his father, as he looks at his son as his son comes I dove these waters being baptized by John the Baptist. He says this is my well beloved son couple of weeks as we think of the Transfiguration Matthew chapter 17 again.

Chapter 17 – five we read a voice from the cloud, saying, this is God speaking regarding his son. This is my beloved son, with whom I am pleased listen to him from heaven to comes a divine declaration that Jesus is no ordinary man is greater than John the Baptist is greater than Elijah is greater than John Amaya yes he is a prophet but is more than a prophet is a very Christ, son of the living. I notice what Jesus then says Jesus the Christ the son of the living God is building his church. Verse 18 declaration comes from Peter Jesus says to Peter writes you didn't get this from someone else was in that one of the rabbis told you this, no, this revelation come from life came from my father in heaven. Verse 18 and I tell you you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it or statement, the church will be built. Jesus says on this rock that the meaning of this rock is greatly debated as many of you know these verses that would add my 216 versus 3320 is one of the basic text for the establishment of the Roman Catholic papacy. Roman Catholicism teaches that personality is the rock on which the whole church is built and in verse 19. Rome would tell us that Jesus promises to give to Peter the keys of the kingdom of heaven with authority to bind and loose bigger than Roman Catholicism is seen as being given supreme authority day over the entire church in this and thought today dining through the ages has been passed on to the Roman bishops.

The polls who are leaders divine successors of apostolic succession. So Rome teaches us that the Pope is the vicar of Christ is God's representative on their listen to the Roman Catholic catechism, listen to their own teaching. The Pope, the Bishop of Rome and Peter successor note that this is the claim of wrongful the Pope. The Bishop of Rome and Peter successor is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unit gave both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful for the Roman pontiff by reason of his office office as vicar of Christ and as pastor notices as pastor of the entire church has full supreme and universal power over the whole church upon which he can always exercise unhindered 882 the words of John Monroe words of the catechism of the Roman Catholic Church notices you can check it yourself is what it says. The Pope is the pass that on the entire church Catholic Church Catholic meeting universal is the pastor of the entire church and his full supreme and universal power over the local church to claim upon which you can always exercise unhindered paragraph 936 the Lord made St. Peter though this is referring here to the very passage movement visible foundation of the church. He entrusted the keys of the church to him, the bishop of the church of Rome, successor to sin Peter and his hand to the college of bishops, the vicar of Christ it again and pastor of the universal church on earth what he claimed to say verses we read, say nothing. Incidentally, of the successors of Peter being infallible or having full supreme and universal power over the whole church claim bring about the Pope is claiming that he has full supreme and universal cloud over the universal church.

So they went out they are part of the church. Generally, we are that the Pope the Bishop of Rome was full supreme and universal power over this church that would Jesus in computer we saw last week that Peter is about to be rebuked by Jesus and called Satan.

Verse 23, he turned and said to Peter, get behind me Satan you are a hindrance to me.

Strange is that if the Roman Catholic Church is right we get such a rebuke is my Peter is going to deny Christ. In fact, later in the Gospels, as we all know is also married would make his mother-in-law in chapter 8. And Peter writes as an old man in first Peter five verse two. That's what mother when he's writing to the elders. Peter describes himself as a fellow elder as we got us a fellow elder was going on here Jesus is building his church. I will bill my church. The Greek word for Peter is Petross small stolen and the word for rock is Petross the grid. The words on the screen there Petross Greek word for Peter Peck try to have similar this feminine word Petross master line Petross feminine Petra is the word for rock.

Some of you have been to Petra in southern Jordan in the in the west of the Jordan been there a few times, Wiesenthal Petra, because it's huge rock.

So now this verse 18 Jesus to Peter. I tell you you are Peter Petross and on this rock Petra I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Not clearly there is a play on words which are missing in our English translation with Petross and Petra play on words, but notice what Jesus does not say Jesus does not say to Peter, you are Peter Petross and on you I will build my church in Scripture. If you know your Bible God, not man is described as a rock on the confession by Peter Petross that Jesus is the Christ the son of the living God is the doctrinal foundation of the church which Christ will build Peter as a great minds can be used mightily by the Lord. This Petross he's the leader of the apostles is the representative of the part of the apostles and in that sense is foundational to the church. So on the great day of Pentecost as the disciples are filled with us, but it would not surprise that the spokesman, the main preacher on the day of Pentecost is not Thomas are are are James it's Peter is the preacher on the day of Pentecost. Furthermore, he's the apostle who first brings the gospel to the Gentiles in acts 10 and verse 11. But the church thing of this church built on the passing of Peter would be a very unstable church say it would be a very rocky church, the doctrinal foundation of the church.

Please hear me comes from the apostles and the prophets. But Jesus Christ, as we sign is the corner so I turned to Ephesians chapter 2 Paul is going to say this church is described in various ways and new Testaments. And here in Ephesians 2, verse 19.

Notice I was described so you talking to Gentile Ephesians who've been converted so you then are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God was the household of God church generalizes we gather together. This is the house of God. You've come into the house of God. Building but as we meet as believers in Jesus Christ. This is the house of God, the household of God. Verse 20 builds on the foundation of the apostles and prophets that the doctrinal statement. These men came in to preach the gospel depletes the doctrine that they had received from the Lord Jesus Christ and that is the very foundation of the church built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the corner so here is Jesus in Caesarea Philippi asking the disciples who do people say that they give the answers, and then he said who do you say that I am response comes from Peter the spokesman divine revelation. Not set up by Peter not set up by Thomas but revealed by God the father himself to Peter representing the apostles and the disciples you are the Christ, the son of the living God know what she's going to do with these men following him. He's teaching them faith is often shaky.

We sometimes find it very difficult to understand the teaching of Jesus, but he's equipping them he's molding them and at the end of Matthew chapter 28 what does he do after his crucifixion after his resurrection, just prior to his ascension, he sends them out and says to them go and make disciples of all nations. They are going and so these disciples are going into the unbelieving world and supplants them to find and to establish his and to establish churches of the living God. But there is no question that while the apostles are absolutely essential to the foundation of the church as the Lord Jesus is commissioning them that Jesus himself is the building of the church and the personal foundation of the church.

He says I will bill my church. How was he going to do it in part by sending out the apostles to preach the gospel. So Paul says in first Corinthians 3 verse 11 talking about the church, for no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Christ Jesus is Peter instrumental for the fund and foundation of the church have so is John so what all the apostles by the personal foundation of the church is our Lord Jesus Christ, and it is he who says I will build my church, by this reference. This reference to the church.

Verse 18. You got your Bible and I tell you your Peter, and on this rock I will build my church. This is the only occurrence of this word church ecclesia in Greek is only occurrence in the Gospels, other than in chapter 18 which will see in a few weeks. What is the church. What is the ecclesia. It is an assembly of people household of God is an assembly people called out from the world to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ at the privilege of speaking to middle schoolers on Wednesday night and I did bring a study of acts and the attic.

Her youth pastor said to me given a section in acts chapter 11 of what Barnabas goes to the church in Antioch.

These are middle school are some of them are here and last of all the questions and I want to encourage the parents of middle schoolers. I told this to Eric.

I was so impressed by the quality of the answers over middle schoolers. These are future leaders of Calvary church and other churches and I don't want to foundation either being late as I asked him questions. One of the questions.

Of course, was this one is the church we have a sign outside this a few yards from me between Ray and there is 51 and it says Calvary church.

But what is Calvary church. Most people I meet with say all that is that big building that used to be fake when they say that pink building is that you have not been in the many many years no longer the thing church blazer with a big, big church railroads that's that's a big campus.

You have with the middle schoolers in different ways.

They said no that's not the church.

The church we have the church. The church is the people of God, and I explained to them as I would explain to you that if a bomb dropped on this campus. Hopefully when none of us were there. But if a bomb dropped on this building in this campus and obliterated it would Calvary church still exist uses. Truth is, the middle schoolers I get. Middle school is Italian. Of course it would exist.

Would no longer meet here the where we would meet by the church. Of course, is not a building this not a denomination. Someone says like him from a Presbyterian church I came from a Baptist church I came from a Roman Catholic church. The church in Scripture is not denomination is not some time that people are put on.

Is not a building is not a denomination is not an agency. What is the church. The church is the people of God fall that we are the church the Lord Jesus Christ. Beginning with these wonderful apostles stumbling along the word. They go on. They preach the gospel and so down through two millennia for hundreds and hundreds of years. Followers of Jesus Christ have obeyed the teaching of our Savior and have continued to spread the gospel so that in the grace of God. Someone communicated the gospel to you and me. Someone brought it to Charlotte. Someone brought it to your street. Someone brought it to your home so that wonderful message of salvation in Jesus Christ is embrace for us that the ecclesia we are called arts Jesus says, follow church. Come join the church don't come follow me I will build my church.

How wonderful is that we are the people of God that we are of the household of God's and Jesus says the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Hades is always opposition to the church so that in the book of acts middle schoolers. There are chapter 12. Next week will see the opposition is hounded is putting one of the apostles, the death opposition in the first century opposition in the 21st century. There is always opposition to the church and there will be until the Lord Jesus Christ returns for his bride and takes his church these people to be forever with himself is a wonderful truth. All of the forces of darkness.

All of the forces of evil all the forces of death itself will not and cannot prevent the triumph of the church is wonderful. People get your people is very easy to get pessimistic today people think of all of the evil going around us and all of the changes in people say the world is changing and sadly is changing. But one thing is not changing the Jesus Christ continues to build his church and other grandfather gives me great hope that when the Lord doesn't, and when my grandchildren are my age, Christ will still be building his church and the very gates of Hades will not overcome it and cannot stop the onward march of the glorious bride of Christ, that we are privileged to follow Christ. You are privileged to come to what we call Calvary church could end, we are the people of God we have the church of the living God.

We are a local manifestation of the great universal church of Jesus Christ who is not had some Bishop some cardinal, some fall, some superintendent no really had as our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the head of the church.

This is his church. Remember when I first came the Calvary 15 years ago. My first meeting with the elders and the on the deacons and the pastors there. Someone said to me as a new pastor I was going to stand and unfold.

My great stride to Jade my great vision for Calvary church in the rather intimidating.

What I'm going to do. I come to Charlotte's and here I am, and I really don't know anyone other than by my wife and here we are, and I'm I'm standing up and I got unfold as it were some great vision for the next years of Kyle Richard pastors with all these books about visions, strategies for the conferences and we and we hit it new philosophies and new strategies and gets very tiresome, at least to me.

And remember that God gave me the wisdom really to say one thing and which is this I don't have a great stride but I do know this, that if we do things in accordance with this book that if we obey the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and do things his way and honor to him that he has said I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not prevail against and I still say that to you, brothers and sisters I Calvary church if we and I say this particularly to my fellow leaders if we will probably continue to do things in accordance with this book to follow the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospels through his apostles in the epistles, and that if we do things God's way. If we continue our focus on Christ on the gospel and the word of God, that the Lord Jesus just mysteriously in ways that we often don't understand is building his church and I saw an example of that in our middle schoolers, and I came away from the middle school time is often on their invited too much as a pastor you're missing the pessimistic rights not cool enough normally to get invited to the middle school.

But one thing I did understand was this that these middle schoolers are learning bit by bit.

This book, and so that when I come as a pastor and take them through a passage of Scripture and asked him several questions that they've gone their rights that we are Christ centered that we are God centered that our answers are fine, not some other book in some grand strategy on our vision or some man-made philosophy but rather in the word of God. So it's so excited I want to say to everyone. I want to say to those of you would listen, particularly our trust that we were followers of Jesus Christ of a high high regard for the local church of Jesus Christ. And I know some of your wrote on my streams on your Facebook medical conditions because of age because of medical conditions are not able to come. I understand that but I don't understand why some of you stay at home you can go to the stores. You can go on vacation you can live your life as if Cova didn't exist, but when it comes to the Lord's day you're sitting at home with a cup of coffee watching by lifestream and you're not here in the assembly of the saints, where God calls you to be so I speak to you, brothers and sisters are home and when we gather. I trust that you will be here that will not allow laziness or getting into very passive way of thinking and say well it's very easy and I can watch by lifestream. Yes, you can watch by lifestream, but God calls us to meet with our fellow believers, and I tell you here that that is something special is that when we gather together yes. In this way as the people of God and pastor hassling other ones, and say lead us to worship God and that we together yes with a facemask and maybe soon be gone, that we need to gather and praise our great God and Savior, and reverently wait and say speak Lord for your servants. Jesus is saying, I will build my church, love what Christ loves.

He says in Ephesians 525 when he tells husband that with 11 wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her very Savior gave his life for the church and we who are part of the church need to come and meet with her brothers and sisters, if we are able to do so. Not that's 19. Another controversial verse I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Amazing statement that the apostles are given the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Now this from SSA is given to the apostles, but it continues today. The keys of the kingdom of heaven are not the keys of supreme authority given to P that is the first pope absolutely no Peter did not have all authority over the church and no man however gifted. However, well-educated, no man ever has that authority over the church and no man is sadly infallible. When he speaks know the keys are representative of a symbol of the authority given by our Lord Jesus Christ to the apostles to proclaim the free forgiveness of sins in our Lord Jesus Christ, that this is not some powdered of seven people in the church over the desk, eternal destiny of others. I can go around saying you say you're not safe to bide sorry kingdom of God is locked to you but you are saved, no man, no woman has that authority. No group of men that are thought to date. The point is this the apostles just think this is not difficult to grasp the apostles as they went, proclaiming the gospel in the first century as we would do now in the 21st century there proclaiming the kingdom of God is open to some undisclosed others.

We do not have the power to forgive sins. In fact in their Bibles as we saw in Matthew chapter 9 the Lord Jesus says, but that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. The only one who can forgive your sins is not me as a past that is not a priest not our fault, no mind, no woman can forgive your sins that only comes from our Lord Jesus Christ. But as his followers. We have the great joy we have the great privilege as we proclaim the gospel of binding and loosing what God has already bind and loose. Let me give you literal translation of verse 19. Some of you have this note as I do in the margin out of the bottom of your Bible lies 90 probably don't have too many grammarians here, but some of you will of habit for future perfect women example of the future perfect in these verses. Whatever you bind on earth shall have been bind in heaven as the force.

Whatever you loose on shall have been loosed in heaven.

That's it. Responding to the gospel (the daughters into God's kingdom, and that some person this morning comes to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ and confesses that Jesus is the Christ the son of the living God and opens their heart to the Lord Jesus as their Lord and Savior. If they do that, we can say if you've done that you are safe.

We are losing what God already has loose in heaven to the same gospel which provides our key to the kingdom of heaven closes the kingdom to those who refuse to believe.

Just imagine if all of your pagans, your hearing the gospel for the first time I died proclaim the message of the gospel. Some of you responds. Others don't. The very message of the gospel which opens the doors and went into the kingdom of heaven is the same gospel which closes the door to those who refuse there's an example Peter preaching in acts chapter 4 talk about boldness is talking to the leaders. Acts chapter 4 verse five on the next day the rulers and elders, and scribes gathered together in Jerusalem with Ananias. I praise Caiaphas and John, and Alexander and all who of the high priestly family together. The point here's the top brass of Judaism in Jerusalem and not very happy with what Peter and the apostles are preaching. Notice what Peter says will break in verse 10. Let it be known to all of you until all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ. Notice Jesus Christ starts by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man is standing before you well. This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which is become the cornerstone and there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

There's the keys of the kingdom here is Peter. Was he doing with great boldness to the very man who'd crucified Christ with great boldness. They say this is the one you rejected him, but he's become the cornerstone and there is no other name. There's no other way for salvation.

There is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved to respond is to enter the kingdom of heaven is that because Peter himself has the authority to forgive sins. Absolutely not. He is man merely pronouncing on our what is true in heaven. Similarly, if you reject the message you unlocked tired of the kingdom isn't either. Who's locking out seven people know is those who refuse heaven itself is saying that there's no other way.

There's no other name under if you reject Jesus the Christ. You are forever forsaken that a key that opens the door the same key but close. I go back to my original question. Who is Jesus utilize that your eternal destiny hinges on your response. I really God life. The very meaning of life hinges on the response/do you know you know the Christ you know can Jesus do know the Lord you come to his cross give the assurance that he has open that door and let you into the kingdom of God, because the Lord Jesus Christ is the door, he is the way he died for your sins. He rose again, this is what Peter is saying and if you're a parent if you come to him.

You will be forever saved to be done. CS Lewis writes I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it, because by and I see everything if you come to the Lord Jesus everything – everything is changed that you transform that no dog the living God, the son of the living God has saved you and indwells you so an understanding of Jesus transforms all of life who is Jesus the Christ is the Messiah is the king is the son of the living God. There is none like him, nor will there ever be anyone like him.

Therefore, no love worship and follow wherever he leads you with the cost whatever it means to love and to follow this wonderful Christ who loves you and gave himself for you and who continues to build his church with little boys and little girls just middle schoolers coming to Christ. Older people, some who perhaps sitting here, you lived a long life and you "a church person you going to church all of your life but you have never, ever, yet personally received Christ into your heart. Do it now. We pray with father. These verses are so powerful we feel were just in the shallows of the vast ocean of your choice gnarly ticket in even today. Calvary.

Jesus is building this church. This local church.

This local assembly here were humbled by that protect us from the enemy and even though made the doors of heaven opened some little girl some man to some woman. No says come into my heart come into my heart come into my heart Lord Jesus come in today come in to stay come into my heart Lord Jesus give you all of the glory in Christ, wonderful
