C is for Come


C is for COME.

“Come” is a word of invitation.
“We bid you to come and celebrate.”
“Hey, wanna come over?”

“Come” is a command.
“Come over here right now, young man.”
“Come and get it!”

“Come” is an action word.
“I’m coming!”
“Come along with us!”

God the Father is forever the gracious host.
Hear His invitation:

“Come now, and let us reason together.” Isa. 1:18
” Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters.” Isa. 55:1
“Come, follow me.” Matt. 4:19
“Come to me all you who are weary.” Matt. 11:28
“Come away with me to a quiet place.” Mark 6:31
“‘Come,’ he replied, ‘and you will see.'” John 1:39
“‘Come and have breakfast,’ Jesus said to them.” John 21:12

come

The Father’s hospitality is seen in the very beginning, in Eden, where He provided a perfect place for the flourishing of humankind. Adam and Eve were the first guests in God’s wonderland called earth. The serpent crashed the party, introducing evil and discord. Ever since, the call has gone out to all the image-bearers: Come.

The Father’s hospitality will be seen in the very end, where He will provide a new heaven and a new earth for whoever RSVPs to the invitation. “Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.” Rev. 22:17

To that I say, “Amen. Come Lord Jesus.”

My favorite word in the Bible that starts with C is COME.

  2. Wonderfully done.
    Thanks Dinah.
    I too pray all come to Him. I pray for His coming again. I pray for the resurrection of the dead and eternal life with Jesus Christ for us all.
