Threefold Reason for Coming

  1. “COME, FOR ALL THINGS ARE NOW READY.” “All things.” Every spiritual and temporal blessing for time and eternity is now ready in Christ Jesus. We often see a notice about some new book being in the press and now ready. Here is an advertisement that all things pertaining to a sinner’s salvation is “NOW READY.” Do you need a substitute?  Then behold the Lamb of God. Do you need forgiveness? Then this is ready (Acts 13:38). Do you need peace? Then “Peace is made,” etc. Do you need power? Then “Power is offered” (Acts 1:8).

 

  1. “COME, FOR ALL CLASSES ARE INVITED.” Surely these four classes include all sorts. First, the poor—those who feed on stale scraps, and have never known what it is to have a thoroughly satisfying feast. Those who go from door to door of the world’s pleasure-haunts, begging for something to satisfy and getting nothing. Second, the maimed—those who have been deprived of some of their limbs, and have become hopelessly mutilated. Morally, this class represents those whose conscience has been seared, and whose will-power may have been cut off. What a helpless object! Yet come, for all things are ready. Third, the halt—those who have all their limbs, but in a crooked and deformed condition, whose manner of walk is neither straight nor steady. They do their best to appear all right, but they cannot possibly conceal their deformity. Fourth, the blind—those who can walk pretty straight, but are in the blackness of darkness all the time. Their outward life may be all right in the eyes of men, but they know not where they are going and are unconscious of their danger. You may explain the truth to them, but their answer is “I cannot see it.

 

  1. “COME. FOR YET THERE IS ROOM.” The house is being rapidly filled, but yet there is room. How much room still remains none can tell. We know not the hour the Master may rise up and shut the door. Yet there is room – room in the Father’s love, in the Saviour’s atoning death, in the ministry of the Spirit, and in the offer of the Gospel.
