Gospel Thought: Come Unto Me is the first Command

How often I struggle in my flesh to obey the secondary commands of the Gospel, while forgetting the first command “Come unto me and I will give you rest… (Matthew 11:28).”

Because of my commitment to self-glory, I resist the Gospel call of Christ to come to Him.  Instead I struggle to obey every other command, and in the effort I’m crushed, angered, demoralized, filled with every demonic fear, overcome with worry, and grasping at any idol I can find to save me.  The first command is not a command at all, it is an invitation that, if resisted, guarantees our demise.
