“Come unto Me.” – Matthew 11:28
Whether you view this as a command, counsel, or an invitation, it is a glorious opportunity for sinful man to reconciled to God who is holy. It is only because of grace that we could ever have such a wonderful privilege as this. Would we not be fools to reject Him? Think about all that would be lost. As James Smith wrote:
“Jesus calls you to His throne; He is there waiting to hear, relieve, and bless you. You are to go to Him just as you are, and receive from Him all you need.
He will give you wisdom, to direct your steps; peace, to keep your hearts; strength, to do His will; righteousness, to justify your souls; and rest, unspeakably sweet. He is glorified in bestowing these blessings upon you. He calls you this MORNING, this MOMENT, to receive without money and without price. What a precious Saviour is Jesus! What a kind and tender Friend!
Let us go boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. “Come,” He says, “come to Me; go not to self, to the world, to the empty cisterns which creatures idolize; but come unto Me, and I will do for you exceeding abundantly, above all you can ask or think. Your sins I will pardon; your graces I will revive; your comforts I will restore; your holiness I will increase; your efforts to glorify Me I will crown with success; I will bless you, and you shall be a blessing.”
O how great is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that seek Thee; which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee, before the sons of men!”
Jesus, with Thy word complying,
Firm our faith and hope shall be;
On Thy faithfulness relying,
We will cast our souls on Thee.
