Why Won't They Come?

As a believer, knowing what Christ has done for me, knowing the difference He has made in my life, hearing His gentle voice, I often wonder why people won’t come to Him. John 3:20 tells us the reason:

Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come into the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. John 3:20

No one wants their evil deeds exposed, their ‘living wrong’ exposed. This is why people even after salvation struggle with whether they are saved or not, because they know what they were before and your struggles afterwards. Jesus knows your evil ways and that is why He is our Savior! Bring the blood of the Lamb into the courtroom of God and all your evil is washed away. Come on your own with all your evil and no blood, and you will be cast into outer darkness! It’s pretty cut and dry. Choose Christ over bad habits, vice, unforgiveness, evil deeds, love of this world and love of self and let Him deal with you or hang onto your evil and you won’t have to worry with Him!

It’s the Gospel! Understand it; you were born in sin, separated from God. You cannot save yourself by doing or being good. Your spirit is dead to God and you could try for eternity to win God’s favor and you would still fail! It took the Savior. The Savior who knew the problem and made a way for you where there was no way. When you understand that, then you can be saved. That’s the Gospel. The Good News! Won’t YOU come?
