An Open Invitation

"All you who are thirsty, come and drink." ISAIAH 55:1, NCV

The most incredible invitations are not found in envelopes; they are found in the Bible. You can't read about God without finding Him issuing invitations. He invited Eve to marry Adam, the animals to enter the ark, David to be king, Israel to leave bondage, Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem. God is an inviting God. He invited Mary to birth His Son, the disciples to fish for men, the adulterous woman to start over, and Thomas to touch His wounds. God is the King who prepares the place, sets the table, and invites His subjects to come in. In fact, it seems His favorite word is come. "Come, let us talk about these things. Though your sins are like scarlet, they can be as white as snow" (Isaiah 1:18, NCV, emphasis added).

"Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28, NCV, emphasis added).

"Come to the wedding feast" (Matthew 22:4, NCV, emphasis added).

"Come follow me, and I will make you fish for people" (Mark 1:17, NCV, emphasis added).

"Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink" (John 7:37, NCV, emphasis added).

God is a God who invites. God is a God who calls. He opens the door and waves His hand, pointing pilgrims to a full table. His invitation is not just for a meal, however; it is for life. An invitation to come into His kingdom and take up residence in a tearless, graveless, painless world. Who can come? Whoever wishes. The invitation is at once universal and personal.
