Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Of Matthew 11:28, St. Augustine wrote in the fifth century A. D.: “I have read in Plato and in Cicero many sayings that are very wise and very beautiful, but I never read in either of them such words as these: ‘Come to me.'” Have you responded to this glorious invitation to receive Christ as your Lord and Saviour? His invitation is still open to you today. Tomorrow may be too late. —W. Ross Rainey

Come to the Saviour, make no delay;
Here in His Word He’s shown us the way;
Here in our midst He’s standing today,
Tenderly saying, “Come!”—George F. Root
