Porter Wagoner Wonders “What Would You Do” If You Meet Jesus

What would you do if Jesus came to your house? Imagine that one day someone knocks at your door while you are going on with your business. Then as you open the door, you unexpectedly see Jesus. Would you graciously welcome Him into your house? Would you serve Him with the best meal and chat with Him? What would you do if Jesus came to your house?

Porter Wagoner’s Recording of “What Would You Do (If Jesus Came to Your House)”

This question has been turned into a gospel song by songwriters Yolanda Adams, Errol McCalla Jr., Jonathan Broussard, and Marcus Ecby in 1956. It was recorded on the same year by Porter Wagoner. “What Would You Do (If Jesus Came to Your House)” was one of the earliest recordings of Wagoner that entered the Billboard chart. He was beginning to make a name in country music when he released this gospel song. Wagoner’s version secured the number eight spot on the country chart. Therefore, making this the highest charting version of the song.

Red Sovine’s Version

Porter Wagoner isn’t the only country artists who released a recording of “What Would You Do (If Jesus Came to Your House).” On the same year, Red Sovine took the single and made his version. It also entered the country chart, but it reached number fifteen on the chart. Sovine performed some part of the song with his signature way of performing music.

About the Song

“What Would You Do (If Jesus Came to Your House)” is a great way for us to reflect on our relationship with Jesus. We may answer the question easily like we are sure of what to do if we meet Him, but the truth is being in such a situation in real life will make us uncomfortable and scared. One interesting thing about the song that will also make us wonder is seen towards the end of the song.

But what about your family conversation would it keep up its normal pace
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace
Would you be glad to have him stay forever on and on
Or would you sigh of great relief when finally he had gone

This will lead us to question ourselves if we have truly accepted Jesus in our life, instead of counting the minutes of Him leaving us.

So, What would you do if Jesus came to your house?
