Come and listen to a story
about a man
Come is a word that calls to us
capture our attention.
The word "Come" grabs our attention...
Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed…
You probably know
the next line in that song.
Most of us
have spent a lot of time
at the Clampett mansion
and other locations given to us by popular TV shows.
We heard the Beverly Hillbillies' invitation
and we responded
the adventures of
Jed, Granny, Elly May, and Jethro.
Almost everyone I know has responded to that invitation by watching some of those wacky episodes.
Yet, there is a more important call
that our "spiritual" ears need to hear.
God often calls to us to "Come."
Sometimes we ignore God's voice, and sometimes other things drown out his voice.
more people respond
when the world calls to them
than when God calls to them each day.
Sadly, the truth is that most children, teens, and adults rarely respond to God's daily call to “come” to the Bible to learn about God and find answers for their life.
Take note that we have
lots of inspirational pages
on the book of Psalms.
In Matthew 28:18-20,
Jesus gives believers a mission.
It has been called:
The GREAT COMMISSION.
We are told to GO into the world and teach the Words of God to all people - including our family members.
Life gets busy, and we get distracted by so many things.
Each day we desperately - need - to listen to God calling us to “Come” to his Word.
Spiritual Daily Bread.
We need to hear God
calling us to
“Come” and spend time
teaching our children about God
– and –
sharing with our friends and extended family
Take note of
what a friend of mine
said to me
the other day.
"I wish someone had invited me to church
when I was a little girl.
My life would have been so much better."
This article is an invitation
and respond to the call of our Lord today.
We recently posted a prayer page about praying for our loved ones who aren't right with God.
It might be a hard page to read.
It can be hard to realize that someone we love is far away from God.
without that realization,
we aren't going to pray passionately
for them TO GET right with God.
