Default Opening text message from Lock Screen?

When a new text arrives, the S4 turns on the screen and shows that a new message has arrived on the lock screen. It there a reliable way to tap or double-tap the notification to go right into the messaging app? I have noticed if I expand the box around the notification on the lock screen I can then tap the notification and go right into the message -- this just seems like an awkward way to do it.

By the way, I do have a shortcut to the messaging app on my lock screen and know about swiping up from there, but it doesn't always work on the first swipe and then it opens in the last viewed text message not the new one. If I have one big complaint with the S4 it is that the lock screen is awkward and it's the area of the interface I probably use the most. Anyone else feel this way?
