“Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” Isaiah 55:1
“Come, for all things are now ready.” Luke 14:17
“The one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” John 6:37
Would the heart of a tender parent permit him to reject the application of a child imploring that relief which he must have or die? No more will God turn a deaf ear to the cry of a trembling sinner.
Let us, therefore, press through a thousand discouragements and venture, just as we are, to make known unto Him our requests. “The one who comes,” He has said, “I will by no means cast out.” He is pleased with our solicitude and importunity, and ere long will send an answer of peace. A feeling of joy is not needful to bring us to Christ — but a feeling of our wants. Jesus always says, “Come.”
Whatever may be your wants, whatever your miseries, or whatever your sins, Jesus says, “Come unto Me.” He has what you need. He has all you need. He has the heart also to give it you, and to give it freely. Not only so — but He really wishes you to have what you need. He considers Himself to be glorified by giving, and that you glorify Him by receiving.
Will you not glorify Jesus by looking into yourself to see what you need, and then going to Him to be supplied? All things are ready. Jesus is willing and waiting, arise and go to Him, for He is calling you. Ask and receive, that your joy may be full.

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
