People ‘come to God’, ‘join church’, ‘take the preachers hand’, ‘get saved’ for innumerable reasons.
Sometimes they come to Christ because they want Him to change their life for the better.
Sometimes they come because their friends or cousins have come.
Sometimes they even come because their parents have pressured them to do so.
A relationship with God has definite benefits, but that’s not the reason we should come to Him.
Notice what Jesus told the crowd who followed Him after feeding over 5,000 people…
John 6:22-27 (NKJV)
22 On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered,[c] and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone— 23 however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks— 24 when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. 25 And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”
26 Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
Yeshua, Jesus Christ gave us a powerful lesson in why we should come to Him. For salvation FIRST!
Why did you come to Jesus? For who He is, or for what He can do?
1 Peter 1:8-9 (NKJV)
8 whom having not seen[a] you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
