“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”
Come to Jesus For Salvation
The water that our body needs will not quench our thirst forever. Just as Jesus explained to the woman at the well that day, He is the Living Water.
“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
Come to Jesus For Courage
Peter asked the Lord “bid me come unto thee”. He did not ask to walk on the water; he simply asked to come to Him. Once Christ told him to come, he had the courage to step out of the boat.
“And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”
Once he got out of the boat, instead of keeping his eyes on Jesus he began to look around and he began to sink. He knew he could not save himself, so he cried unto Jesus to save him.
“But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.”
God will not turn anyone away or refuse them when they ask to come unto Him. Peter asked to be sent to Him. He sought the Lord’s direction. He asked for permission before stepping out of the boat. Christ not only bid him to step out in faith, but He allowed him to sink a little bit in order for Peter to learn a lesson.
Sometimes the Lord allows us to sink a little bit to remind us of our need for Him. Ask the Lord for permission, and then step out in faith. If you begin to sink, just call on Him to deliver you.
Come to Jesus for Rest
Even in serving the Lord, we must take the time to rest. Whether we are physically, emotionally, or even spiritually tired…Jesus can give us rest if we will simply come to Him.
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
What do you need to come to Jesus for today?
Whatever your need, He is the Answer.
