Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry
Thank God for the Great Encouragement Christ Gave to Poor Sinners to Come to Him
For the great encouragement Christ gave to poor sinners to come to him.
We bless you that Jesus Christ came not to call the righteous, but sinners (such as we are) to repentance, Matthew 9:13(ESV) and had power on earth to forgive sins; Matthew 9:6(ESV) that he came to save his people from their sins, Matthew 1:21(ESV) and is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world; John 1:29(ESV) and that he is (to his honor, not to his reproach) a friend to tax collectors and sinners. Matthew 11:19(ESV)
We thank you for the gracious invitation he gave to those who are weary and heavy laden to come to him for rest: Matthew 11:28(ESV) And for the assurance he has given that whoever comes to him, he will never cast out. John 6:37(ESV)
That he made a gracious offer: that if anyone thirsts they might come to him and drink. John 7:37(ESV)
