"I Want You!"

Alexander Graham Bell made his first telephone call using an old cigar box, two magnets, and two hundred feet of wire.

The message? “Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.”

That is God’s message to each of us. He says, “I want you.”

He wants us to come to Him for His salvation and the eternal life He has to give us through Christ, His Son. He begins by knocking at the door of our hearts and saying, “If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in.”

But what else does He offer? A hope that will encourage us. A light that will guide us. A peace that will calm us. A purpose that will empower us. A rest that will sustain us. A strength that will fill us. A love that will nourish us. A faith that will work for us. And finally, a home that will welcome us.

“Come unto me,” He says, “and I will give You.....”

Whatever we need is ours for the asking and His for the giving.

Prayer: We come to You, Father, knowing that every good and perfect thing comes from You alone. When we are weak, You can make us strong and when we lack anything, You can fill in the gaps. May we come to You, remembering that whatever concerns us concerned You first. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Matthew 11:28 (New International Version)

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
