Jesus is the Way to Himself

“I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me.” – Romans 10:20 (Isaiah 65:1)

Lo, I come. – Psalm 40:7

To many men and women Christ has come though they had not even desired Him. Yea, He has come even to those who hated Him. Saul of Tarsus was on his way to worry the saints at Damascus, but Jesus said, “Lo, I come”; and when He looked out of heaven He turned Saul, the persecutor, into Paul, the apostle. The promise is fulfilled, “I was found of them that sought Me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after Me.” Herein is the glorious sovereignty of His love fully exercised, and grace reigns supreme. “Lo, I come,” is the announcement of majestic grace which waiteth not for man, neither tarrieth for the sons of men.

Our Lord Jesus is the way to Himself. Did you ever notice that? He comes Himself to us, and so He is the way by which we meet Him. He is our rest, and the way to our rest; He says, “I am the way.” You want to know how to get to Christ? You have not to get to Christ, for He has come to you. It is well for you to come to Christ; but that is only possible because Christ has come to you. Jesus is near you: near you now. Backslider, He comes to you! Wandering soul, roving to the very brink of perdition, the good Shepherd cries, “Lo, I come.” He is the way to Himself. ` C.H. Spurgeon
