Willingness

In John 5 v 40, Jesus made an interesting statement to the crowd before him: “But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” The gift of free choice is both marvellous and horrible. Marvellous, in that it gives us the power to choose God. Horrible, in that it likewise gives us the power to turn our backs on Him. “You are not willing,” Jesus said. Our Lord, by comparison, is always willing. He is ready and available to save every day, every hour and every minute. All that stands in the way of your salvation, is your willingness. What is holding you back? Fear of rejection? He will never reject you. Fear of the unknown? He knew you before you were born. Fear of disappointment? He is incapable of it. Come to Him and you will receive life.
