“Let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
If there be a sense of sin and lack of spiritual blessings and a willingness to be saved by grace, though you know not it is by Christ’s secret power that makes you willing — yet being athirst and willing, you are invited. Do not puzzle and perplex yourself with such questions as these: “Am I elected? Have I a right? Am I prepared?” But come upon the invitation and take pardon, peace, righteousness, and every gospel blessing, as free gifts to the needy.
If one ready to perish with hunger and thirst were invited to a feast, and assured of a welcome, and he should hesitate, inquiring, “Have I a right? Am I worthy?” would it not seem preposterous in him thus to demur, when his necessities were pressing upon him and a plentiful table before him? The weary, the hungry, the thirsty, the guilty, the worthless, the vilest, are invited to believe on Jesus, who came only to save sinners and has assured them, in His word, that they who thus come to Him shall in no wise be cast out. Jesus never yet cast out one, nor will He cast out you. Go to Him and try.
