Turn Unto Me and Live

Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28

Come, poor sinner, come and put thy trust in my Master! Thou canst not think Him hard-hearted. If He were, why did He die? Dost thou think Him unkind? Then why did He bleed? Thou art inclined to think so hardly of Him! Thou art making great cuts at His heart when thou thinkest Him to be untender and ungenerous. “As I live, saith the Lord, I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, but rather that he would turn unto Me and live.” This is the voice of the God whom you look upon as so sternly just!..You working men, you labouring men, Christ bids you come to Him “all ye that labour.” And you who are unhappy, you who know you have done wrong, and cannot sleep at night because of it; you who are troubled about sin, and would fain go and hide your heads, and get- “Anywhere, anywhere out of the world,”-your Father says to you one and all, “Run not from Me, but come to Me, My child!” Jesus, who died, says, “Flee not from Me, but come to Me, for I will accept you; I will receive you; I cast out none that come unto Me. “Sinner, Jesus never did reject a coming soul yet, and He never will. Oh! try Him! Try Him! Now come, with thy sins about thee just as thou art, to the bleeding, dying Saviour, and He will say to thee, “I have blotted out thy sins; go and sin no more; I have forgiven thee.” May God grant thee grace to put thy trust in Him “who gave Himself for us”! ~ C.H. Spurgeon
