I was reading Matthew 14, particularly verses 25-30. This is where Christ had been teaching the multitudes and fed the 5000. He left the crowds and went up to the mountain to pray. Meanwhile, his disciples got into their boat and pushed out on the sea of Galilee. A storm arose and the disciples became concerned and afraid. Jesus watching from afar went to them, walking on the water. Peter, finding out it was Jesus walking on the water toward them said, “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water”. Jesus said simply “come”. The last four words of verse 29 is “to go to Jesus”. These four words cause me reflection…To Go To Jesus…how do I go to Jesus? What does that look like and am I doing it every day? What is distracting me from coming to Jesus? The noise of every day is loud in my ears, pulling and tugging for my attention, taking away my focus. I find that I must be intentional, purposeful and determined in my pursuit to go to Jesus. His invitation is clear and is repeated numerous times, “come unto me” Incline your ear, and come unto me, Isa. 55:3.
Come unto me, all ye that labor, Matt. 11:28.
Suffer little children to come unto me, Matt. 19:14.
If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, Luke 9:23.
He that cometh to me shall never hunger, John 6:35.
Christ invites all to come unto him, 2 Ne. 26:33.
Come unto me and be saved, 3 Ne. 12:20.
Come unto Christ, Moro. 10:32.
Invite all to come unto Christ, D&C 20:59.
Come unto me, and your souls shall live, D&C 45:46.
