In the evening, the whole city gathered at the door, and Jesus, instead of telling them to go away until they met certain conditions, received them. Jesus stands ready to receive you now too – just as He was ready and willing to receive those who came to Him in our text – if you come to Him on His terms.
This morning, we consider three things:
Jesus stands ready to receive you – don’t be afraid that He will turn you away; He won’t, if you come to Him in faith. He stands ready to receive you now – don’t put it off until you think you’ve done something to make you more worthy.
