The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. v17
The thirsty can come. Those who desire can come to Jesus without any price to pay. It is an open door.
Here we are at the end of Revelation. And with all the craziness & scariness & confusion of Revelation we are left with this beautiful nugget of truth to send us out: Come.
If you are thirsty, come!
If you desire the water of life, come!
It can feel like, especially with the weight of Revelation that the Gospel is somehow altered, or works become more valuable when we come up against the weight of God’s holiness. But that isn’t what Jesus wants to leave us with.
Instead, He says “Come.”
If you feel dirty & wicked & far away, Come! Jesus is welcoming you. Until the end of time, he will never stop calling you to come. The end will come & when it does He will stop saying it, but now, until the very last second he will be calling the world to him to get living water for free.
I pray I would never forget that you welcome me. And that you are calling the whole world to your side. I pray I would go out with that gospel while I drink it down myself. May we always rejoice in you!
