Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
Consider well that it is contrary to His nature to refuse to bless. He is brimful of love; and if He does put a sinner back for a while, it is only because it is right and kind and wise to do so. But His heart yearns over every seeking sinner. He wants you more than you want Him. He longs after you. He desires to bless you. He must do so; it is His nature to do so.
He must give you a comfortable reply before long, again, for it is contrary to His glory to refuse. If He allowed a seeking sinner to die, where would His troubles be? Has He not said, “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out”? Our friend, Dr. Barnardo, announces that in his refuges no homeless boy will ever be rejected: that no destitute child shall ever be turned away. Suppose somebody could prove-which, of course they cannot do-that scores of destitute children were turned away, all confidence in him would be destroyed. And if it could be proved that Christ ever cast out a single soul that came to Him, it would take away His honor and glory. We could never believe Him any more. Perish the thought of such a thing!
It is contrary to His word to refuse any seeker, and Christ will keep His word. “Come unto Me,” saith He, “all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” If Christ will not give you rest when you come to Him, what is His promise worth? ~ C.H. Spurgeon
