Come, Follow, Go – Part I
Prince of Peace

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest..."
~ from Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)

We tend to see faith as passive. After all, we receive Jesus as a gift. Works cannot earn salvation. His strength is manifest in our weakness.

But Jesus calls us to active faith. He comes to us not once but each day with an invitation: "Come to Me." He never intends to leave us where He finds us, but for us to walk with Him.

Whether we accept or decline, we cannot remain the same. In acceptance is peace. In declining, we will forever be uneasy, left with the question, "what if?"

"No Jesus, no peace.
Know Jesus, know peace."
~ Unknown

  1. So true! Faith is a verb and that means action. I sure want to be busy about His work when He returns.


  2. Child of God, your active faith shines brightly at your blog! Jesus is smiling. Me too. C:

  3. I know someone with that bumper sticker on her car. ;)

    Wise words as always, Anne, and I need to hear them as I depend more and more on God's provision with my busy life and my health.

    May God bless you richly!

  4. Gwen, I hope you'll have a moment to read today's post, about not running ahead of God. It is a hard-earned lesson I've (unfortunately) had to repeat over and over. I think I'm starting to get it though.

    You take care of yourself! (I MEAN it!)
