AN INVITATION TO COME
In Luke 9:23 Jesus says:
“If anyone would come to me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
That is the blessed invitation of Jesus Christ to all lost sinners.
And it is always the same.
There must be a desire to follow Him. Only God can give you that desire.
You have to ask Him for it. You have to want it.
There must be a denial of self. You must say no to all your selfish desires and say yes to the will of God in Christ Jesus. You have to ask for it. You have to want it.
There must be a determination to follow Him. Onl;y God can give you that determination.
You have to ask Him for it.
You have to want it.
Jesus must be supreme.
He must have priority.
He must have preeminence in your life.
He must be Lord!
Desire. Denial. Determination. Ask for it. Want it. God will give it!
