Running To Jesus
Running to Jesus, but then stopping short;
Oh listen to this message, this solemn report:
Don’t stop when you see Him – go on, go on –
Accept the salvation found in God’s Son.
Running to Jesus, but then holding back –
There is only one thing you so sorely lack:
Turn away from all sin that stands in your way;
Come running to Jesus, come running today.
Running to Jesus – oh but time is fleeting;
You also are running to that final meeting.
There’s an appointment with death that awaits you ahead;
Find refuge in Jesus and the blood that He shed.
Running to Jesus, but that is not all:
Receive Him, believe Him, and answer His call;
Oh sinner, don’t let it be said on that great Judgement Day,
That you weren’t running to Jesus – you were running away…

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
