Come, Needy One, to Jesus Christ

Then drew near unto Him all the publicans and sinners for to hear Him. – Luke 15:1

There is this to be said to you who are unconverted-if Jesus Christ be so approachable, oh! how I wish, how I wish that you would approach Him. There are no bolts upon His doors, no barred iron gates to pass, no big dogs to keep you back. If Christ be so approachable by all the needy ones, then needy one, come, and welcome. Come just now! What is it that keeps you back? You think that you do not feel your need enough, or that you are not fit to come-both of which suspicions are self-righteousness in different shapes. O that you did know but your need of Jesus, in order to be able even to do so much as feel your need. You are a poor, miserable bankrupt soul before God, and Christ alone can enrich you. Do not talk of fitness; there is no such thing: –

“All the fitness He requireth,
Is to feel your need of Him:
This He gives you;
‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam.”

Come, then. There is such mercy to be had; there is such a hell to be escaped from; there is such a heaven to be opened for you; delay not but believe at once. Come, come, come! I stand at mercy’s door and say to every passerby, in the name of the Master, “My oxen and fatlings are killed; come, come, come to the supper!” If it be easy to come to Him, what excuse can there be for you if you refuse to accept Him? I have tried to tell you what the way of salvation is. O you needy ones, let your need impel you to come at once, that you may find eternal life in Him. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
