Thanksgiving 4.18 | NIV
For the great encouragement Christ gave to poor sinners to come to him.
I bless you that Jesus Christ did not come to call the righteous, but sinners (such as myself) to repentance, Matthew 9:13(NIV) and that he had authority on earth to forgive sins; Matthew 9:6(NIV) that he came to save his people from their sins, Matthew 1:21(NIV) and is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world; John 1:29(NIV) and that he is (to his honor, not to his reproach) a friend to tax collectors and sinners. Matthew 11:19(NIV)
I thank you for the gracious invitation he gave to those who are weary and burdened to come to him for rest: Matthew 11:28(NIV) And for the assurance he has given that whoever comes to him, he will never drive away. John 6:37(NIV)
That he made a gracious offer, that if anyone is thirsty they might come to him and drink. John 7:37(NIV)
