“Come unto Me!” Matthew 11:28
Jesus calls you to His throne of grace. He is there waiting to hear, relieve and bless you. Go to Him as you are, and receive from Him all you need.
He will give you:
wisdom, to direct your steps;
peace, to keep your hearts;
strength, to do His will;
righteousness, to justify your souls;
and rest, unspeakably sweet.
He is glorified in bestowing these blessings upon you. He calls you this morning, this moment–to receive all you need, without money and without price. What a precious Savior is Jesus! What a kind and tender Friend!
“Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
“Come!” He says, “Come to Me!
Do not go to SELF, to the world, to the empty cisterns which creatures idolize; but come unto Me, and I will do immeasurably more than all you can ask or imagine!
Your sins, I will pardon;
and your graces, I will revive;
your comforts, I will restore;
and your holiness, I will increase;
your efforts to glorify Me, I will crown with success;
Therefore I will bless you, and you shall be a blessing!”

(J. R. Miller, “Ministry of Comfort” 1898)
“The Father of compassion—and the God
of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3
There is a blessing in true human sympathy.
God sends our friends to us, to bring us little
measures of His own love—little cupfuls of His
grace. But He Himself is the only true comforter.
His love alone—is great enough to fill our heart,
and His hand alone—has skill to bind up our
However deep the sorrow may be—if we creep
into God’s bosom, and nestle there like a tired
child in the mother’s arms—God’s love will
enfold and embrace us, and flow into our
heart—and we shall be comforted, satisfied.
“As a mother comforts her child—so will
I comfort you.” Isaiah 66:13
