Has anyone ever invited you to a special or expensive trip or event? What if they said, “Just come,” and it won’t cost you a cent?” How would that make you feel? Excited, I’m sure. Would you be more inclined to go, than not? Like most of us, we would feel so grateful that someone cared enough to offer such a grand invitation. That’s exactly what Jesus did for me and you. He invited us to come to Him, without money and without price. He said, “Come everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come buy wine and milk without money and without price” (Isaiah 55:1 ESV). Jesus is that Living water, and He has graciously invited us to come to Him for Salvation, free of charge.
After receiving such a grand invitation, I’m encouraging you to gladly… “Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD who stand by night in the house of the LORD” (Psalm 134:1)! I’m also encouraging you to shout with me… “Oh come let us sing unto the LORD, let us make a joyful noise unto the rock of our salvation!” (Psalm 95:1) and, “Oh come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker!” (Psalm 95:6). Just come.
“Come unto me, all who labor are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Mathew 28:11 ESV.
I will keep on thanking God for His gracious standing invitation for salvation to everyone. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com.
