COME

June 24th, 2013 by derekthecleric

Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28 NIVUK)  COME: What are you waiting for? The invitation is plain. And, the One Who offers that welcome is sincere. There is nothing to fear. He will not change His mind, even if you decide to delay. Standing right beside you, waiting patiently, oh so patiently, is the Lord of glory. With arms that are open wide on a crude cross, blood billowing from hands and feet, head and side, He says, "Come." No matter how bad you have been. Irrespective of how you have failed others…yourself…God. Come and receive forgiveness. Come and know what true love is. Come and revel in the freedom felt by those who know the LORD’s grace at work in their lives. Don’t hold back, just COME!
