- Grace offers of Pardon and Peace.
- An invitation to receive freely the blessings of the Saviour.
All are welcome to blessings of salvation, to whom those blessings of salvation, to whom those blessings are welcome. In Christ there is enough for all, and enough for each.
Those satisfied with the world, that see no need of Christ, do not thirst. They are in no uneasiness about their souls: but where God gives grace, he gives a thirst after it; and where he has given a thirst after it, he will give it.
Come to Christ, for he is the Fountain open, he is the Rock smitten. Come to holy ordinances, to the streams that make glad the city of our God. Come to the healing waters, come to the living waters, Revelation 22:17. Our Saviour referred to this, John 7:37.
The world comes short of our expectations, we promise ourselves, at least , water in it, and we are disappointed; but Christ outdoes our expectations. We come to him, and we find wine and milk. The gift offered to us are such as no price can be set upon. The things offered are already paid for; for Christ purchased them all the full price of his own blood, 1 Peter 1:19.
Our wants are beyond numbers, and we have nothing to supply them; if Christ and heaven are ours, we see ourselves for ever indebted to free grace.
All his mercies are covenant mercies; they are purchased by him, they are promished to us. We know not how to find the way to the waters, but Christ is given to be a Leader, a commander, to show us what to do, and enable us to do it. Our business is to obey him, and follow him.
And there is no coming to the Father but by him. He is the Holy One of Israel, true to his promises; and he has promished to glorify Christ, by giving him the heathens for his inheritance.
The Gift of Salvation, believe and receive. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL !
