The term "come to Jesus" often has a negative connotation... a meeting that is life changing yes...most often turns out for good...but not something we would want to experience with any sense of regularity. The term is most often combined in a phrase like this. "It's time to have a meeting, a come to Jesus meeting!" The intended recipient of this meeting has likely done something, maybe repeatedly, that warrants a meeting with their Creator. The words seldom refer to the speaker, but refer to some other individual that they are in relationship with who needs to make a change, who needs to be held accountable for their actions. The implied outcome of the meeting, is that Jesus is going to shape them up!
But the words COME TO JESUS are some of the sweetest words you and I could ever hear...and they are just the words our world needs to hear. Once we truly come, come to Jesus our lives are never the same. As we continue to come to Jesus our lives are never the same. As we help others come to Jesus...my heart leaps, tears well in my eyes, and I hold my breath...our lives are never the same. The Creator meeting with His created ones.
I come to Jesus for...
I come to Jesus with...
All of me
Take a listen to this song...
Come to Jesus...Chris Rice
We all need Come to Jesus meetings every moment of every day!
My heart aches to share Jesus with the women and children of Cambodia. That they have a Creator who longs for them to know Him...He wants them to come to Himself.
