My Utmost For His Highest : "Getting There"


June 11, 2012


Come unto Me.

Matthew 11:28

Do I want to get there? I can now. The questions that matter in life
are remarkably few, and they are all answered by the words - "Come
unto Me." Not - Do this, or don't do that; but - "Come unto Me." If I
will come to Jesus my actual life will be brought into accordance
with my real desires; I will actually cease from sin, and actually
find the song of the Lord begin.

Have you ever come to Jesus? Watch the stubbornness of your heart,
you will do anything rather than the one simple childlike thing -
"Come unto Me." If you want the actual experience of ceasing from
sin, you must come to Jesus.

Jesus Christ makes Himself the touchstone. Watch how He used the word
"Come." At the most unexpected moments there is the whisper of the
Lord - "Come unto Me," and you are drawn immediately. Personal
contact with Jesus alters everything. Be stupid enough to come and
commit yourself to what He says. The attitude of coming is that the
will resolutely lets go of everything and deliberately commits all to

". . . and I will give you rest," i.e., I will stay you. Not - I will
put you to bed and hold your hand and sing you to sleep; but - I will
get you out of bed, out of the languor and exhaustion, out of the
state of being half dead while you are alive; I will imbue you with
the spirit of life, and you will be stayed by the perfection of vital
activity. We get pathetic and talk about "suffering the will of the
Lord!" Where is the majestic vitality and might of the Son of God
about that?
