What if God Threw You a Party?

What if God threw you a party
And you didn't come?
His Son paid a visit,
And you were not home?
You inherited great riches in store
But never answered the knock on your door?

Oh dreamer awake! God's dreaming of you!
And all of his plans for your life can come true.
All of his hopes and
Every one of his dreams
If you will just give up
On your empty schemes.

Way back at creation
Before life began
God had a grand vision
And YOU were in HIS plan!

Every last detail was worked out with care
To give you a future with peace up there.
The joy of his presence, promised as well,
Not merely that you should escape hell.

All of these blessings He has in store--
As well as communion which you ignore--
Were purchased with the blood
Of his only dear Son
When he in great anguish
Your victory won!

Now wouldn't you think it a trifle ungrate
To live like his plans for you could just wait?
For surely he's given it
All up to you--
It's your choice completely
Just what you'll do.

Yet think for a moment what it cost him
And you'll see truly it would be a sin--
And not just a sin
But a shame so complete
To miss your own party
And YOUR reserved seat!
