When we were burdened by our sins and destined for eternal destruction (Matthew 7:13-14), Jesus, the Son of God, came to OUR rescue. He left the glories of heaven, put on human flesh, and came to live among men (Philippians 2:5-8; John 1:14). Many did not recognize Him (John 1:10-11), but that did not deter Him from going to the cross and dying for the sins of the world (Romans 5:6-8).
Having paid the price for sin, He invites us to accept the GIFT of salvation on His terms: believing in Him (John 8:24), turning from sin in repentance (Acts 17:30-31), confessing Him before men (Romans 10:9-10), and being baptized (immersed) in His name for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). At the point of our greatest need, salvation from sin, Jesus came to us. And His invitation continues to be offered: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).
He came to us to save us. Will you respond to His invitation: “Come to Me,” and enjoy the salvation that He desires for you?
