This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: James 4:8 (ESV)
Today I want you to hear that Christ is calling you to him.
Recently I read one of the daily messages from a devotional called Wisdom Hunters, and it has stayed on my heart ever since. The central theme of the message is to remind us that Christ wants us to come to him. The message opens with Matthew 11:28 that reads: “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened.”
The message goes on to say, “Christ isn’t calling you to a church or a particular religious method of prayer. He’s calling you to himself. When you want to lay down and give up on life, he is saying, ‘Come to me.’ When your finances are a mess; when work is tiring you out; when your marriage is in trouble; when you feel ashamed, worried, anxious, frustrated, or angry, he is saying, ‘Come to me.’”
This devotion reminds me of what Christ told some of the Pharisees when they asked him to show them a sign. Because of their lack of faith, he refused to show them a sign, but he warned them by reminding them that when Jonah spoke to the men of Nineveh, they repented. Yet someone has come who is far greater than Jonah. The Queen of the South came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon. Yet someone greater than Solomon is here now.
Jesus is here now with you and he is calling you to him. How will you respond? As you think about that, remember these words: “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8 (ESV)
So today, answer his call.
