• Jesus isn't just for Sunday!

• He desires, and deserves to be included in all of life!

• He is either Lord of all, or He isn't Lord Acts 10:36

======================================

B. The Call - Jesus is here by invitation! Someone possessed the forethought and thoughtfulness to call Jesus to this event.

• Never be guilty/exclude Jesus/any areas of your life.

• If we are truly His, He has access rights to everything

Some, here today, need to open area of your life up to God

• Stop holding back and give God access to everything!

• In too many lives, Jesus is left standing outside looking in - Rev. 3:20

Times when Jesus stands ready/solution to your problem

• Instead of butting in, He waits patiently for your invitation!

====================================

Christ's Consideration - Notice that when He was called, Jesus came!

• All the events of life/child of God need never fear Jesus not coming to the aid!

• He cares and when we call, He will answer us and move in our need - Matt. 7:7-8; Jer. 33:3.

It may not be the Baptist way, but learn to run to Jesus before you climb on the rocking horse of worry

• Jesus will take you farther, faster!
