Come to MeLaw versus Grace
Posted 13 January 2018 - 11:32 PM
by Charles Spurgeon
The cry of the Christian religion is the gentle word, "Come." The Jewish law harshly said, "Go, take heed to your steps as to the path in which you walk. Break the commandments and you shall perish; keep them and you shall live." The law was a dispensation of terror, which drove men before it as with a scourge; the Gospel draws with bands of love. Jesus is the Good Shepherd going before His sheep, bidding them follow Him, and ever leading them onwards with the sweet word, "Come." The law repels, the Gospel attracts. The law shows the distance which there is between God and man; the Gospel bridges that awful chasm, and brings the sinner across it.

I love how that `word,` has a fresh sound every day, `Come to Me,` says the Lord. Too often we rush to this & that, instead of coming to the Lord and receiving fresh strength & wisdom for the day. Sometimes even words are not needed but a receiving heart.
Thanks for that `word` Deb. Marilyn.

Continuing on now with what Spurgeon wrote:
From the first moment of your spiritual life until you are ushered into glory, the language of Christ to you will be, "Come, come to Me." As a mother puts out her finger to her little child and woos it to walk by saying, "Come," even so does Jesus. He will always be ahead of you, bidding you follow Him as the soldier follows his captain. He will always go before you to pave your way, and clear your path, and you shall hear His animating voice calling you after Him all through life; while in the solemn hour of death, His sweet words with which He shall usher you into the Heavenly world shall be -- "Come, you blessed of My Father."
