Coming to Christ – 7 ways

This might be a little bit twee but I’d not seen it before and I liked it. It’s James Philip quoting AT Pierson……

“A word must now be said about the exercise of faith and how to receive and rest upon him for salvation. By the help of the Spirit of God men are enabled to see the truth of the gospel and to grasp both that there are certain things to learn about Christ – that he is a great and wonderful Saviour – and that they must act on what they have learned, and come to Him. And “coming to Him” is sometimes a real problem. How does one “come”? A. T Pierson points out that there are seven ways in which the Scriptures tell us that we can come to Christ, seven illustrations which show what it means to come to Him.

One is for the eyes: “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth” (Isa 45:22) Coming to Him is the same as looking to Him.

One is for the ears: “Hear, and your soul shall live” (Isa 55:3) “The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God; and they that hear shall live” (John 5:25) Coming to Him, then, is the same as hearing his voice.

One is for the hands: “Whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” (Rev 22:17)

One is for the feet: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28)

One is for the mouth: “O taste and see that the LORD is good,; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him” (Psalm 34:8)

One is for the will: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve” (Joshua 24:15)

One is for the heart: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come in” (Revelation 3:20)”
