Will You Come
We are a privileged nation and a people with a great many benefits. We are able to experience so many more things than than a vast majority of the rest of the world. We have the ability to pick and choose from an infinite amount of detailed choices. Nearly everything in our culture is customizable. For us, there are not many things outside of our reach.
This isn’t always a good thing though. We have so much that can be afforded to us that sometimes the very thing that we need the most may not be the thing we want. Those customizable choices can sometimes lead us to focus more on ourselves than the One who deserves the focus. This is a haunting thought. The vast amount of things that we have at our grasp can sometimes be more of a distraction than a benefit. If we are not careful we may fail to see all that this world was meant to point to! If we are focused on the wrong thing we may miss the only One who can give our heart peace!
It is true that we have an incredible amount of things at our fingertips, but what we must never miss is that these things will never compare to the person we have been privileged to know! Psalm 95 says, 1 “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! 2 Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!” 6 “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! 7 For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.”
God is our foundation and our salvation! He is the one thing that will hold us through the midst of any storm! Not only is He our maker, but He is our Shepherd. He is the one who cares for us! The very creator of the entire universe has called you His own if you trust in Christ! This omnipotent God does not hold you far from Him, but He invites you to come! He is not a God who is far off, but through His mercy and grace allows you and I to come into His presence! Through Him you can experience what none of the things in this world have the ability to give you. The question is why would we ever chase other things rather than come to Him. He alone can and will fulfill you and I. The ultimate question is will you come? Will you follow the exhortation of the Psalmist and come to the One who is worthy. You have been privileged to do so. The only question now is will you come?
