Jesus said, “Come and see” (John 1:39); “Come to me” (Matt. 11:28); “Follow me” (Luke 18:22); “Abide in me” (John 15:4). These verses all contain simply verbs, but to the sinner they became imperatives. Those who answered his call then began their Christian walk.
There was a passage in last week’s sermon that was a stand out, “Come, you who are blessed by the Lord, he said. Why are you standing out here? I have prepared the house…” (Gen. 24:31). Few passages in the Bible surpass the beauty of this verse.
Our Christian journey began with our response to Jesus simply invitation to come, to follow, to abide. One day, when our pilgrim’s journey is finished, we will hear Jesus say these words to us, “Come, you who are blessed by the Lord. Why are you standing out here? I have prepared the house.”
It will be beautiful,
