DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 9:1-37; Jeremiah 44:1-30; Hebrews 11:17-40

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

These are words of personal invitation. We are invited to come to a Person, not to a church, a creed or an organization. “Come to me,” the Lord Jesus says. Joining a church will not save you or solve your spiritual problems. Yet many have joined churches and attended meetings without ever finding the rest that comes with salvation. Are you one of them, my friend? In order to find true rest, forgiveness of sins and a new life in Christ, you must come to Him. Delay no longer. Do it today! —Carl Knott

Come to the Saviour, make no delay,
Here in His Word He has shown us the way. —G. F. Root
