INVITATION: STEP INSIDE

“COME TO ME”

STEP INSIDE

Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Isaiah 28:12

 “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and, “This is the place of repose”

IMG_3494BBB

Jeremiah 31:25

“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”

John 7:37

On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.

Acts 20:35

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”

Matthew 7:7-8

 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

There can be no doubt, however, that Jesus meant when he said “come to me”, He was chiefly addressing the poor, lost, ruined sinner: the man “burdened” with a consciousness of his transgressions, trembling at his danger, and seeking deliverance. For such persons, there is relief. Christ tells them to come to him, to believe in him, and to trust him, and him only, for salvation. Doing this, he will give them rest – rest from their sins, from the alarms of conscience, from the terrors of the law, and from the fears of eternal death.
