Re:Verse passage – Luke 6:46-49 (day six)
I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. Luke 6:47
Stop for a moment and give these words some thought, “when someone comes to me.” Jesus, the Son of God, creator of the heavens and earth, holy and true, purer than the fiercest fire, God with us, says, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden.” Come to me.
Who exactly? Any of us and all of us. Not just squeaky clean, lovely kind of people, but the broken, fractured, disfigured-by-sin kind of people. Jesus is eager to receive all, if we would only come to him.
In our world, the more powerful you become the less accessible you become. Not so with Jesus. His invitation to come to him is the very heart of his mission.
Is your life characterized by coming to him? Have you taken his invitation for granted? I know I do from time to time; maybe even last week. And even still, he says come to me.
How about you?
