“You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.” The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God.
You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven.
You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.”
When you accepted Jesus into your heart and life, look what the Bible says you have come to: a new home, a new inheritance, a new protection, a new security, a new helper, a new perfector, a new covenant, a new power, and a new sacrifice. The old is gone and the new is come! You have all of this right in front of you and all around you. You have been relieved of the duty of making your own way, worrying about whether or not you are pleasing Him or not, being scared to mess up for fear you will be zapped with His heavenly ray gun, reprimanded for not getting life done perfectly, or anything else that has to do with you preparing yourself for Him. Look what He has prepared for you!! Instead of wondering where your help will come from….know that it has come from the Lord!
Now He beckons for you to come…..
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” Mark 1:17
“Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine .” John 21:12
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Rev. 3:20
So COME! and rest, feast, follow, and fish……it is the way of your King….
Love this! I so need to be reminded how in the world we forget the simple things.
