Higher Every Day – Come Sincerely To Christ – Pastor W. F. Kumuyi.
BIBLE TEXT: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
Often, when invitations are given, the response is dependent on the social status of the inviter or the importance of the purpose of the invitation. Wedding invitations from people of the upper class in our societies are hardly turned down. While some invitations are open to all, others are restricted or even private. Such was the one of King David to Uriah, a faithful soldier in his army. Uriah promptly left the battlefield and honoured the invitation because it came from the Commander In Chief (CIC). Unfortunately, his host had ulterior motives and eventually plotted his death. However, Jesus, the Root and Offspring of David, the King of kings, the Rose of Sharon, who came to give abundant life, is giving a universal invitation. No ulterior motives in this. But you have to accept it personally. Come sincerely to Him with all your burdens and have rest unspeakable. Moreover, your positive response entitles you to a ticket for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. You cannot miss this invitation; act now.
Challenge: Come believing, look and live.
Prayer: I am thine Lord Jesus, I have heeded your invitation.
Quote: You cannot miss this invitation; act now
