The old hymn beckons a with these words:
“Just as I am, without one plea
But that thy blood was shed for me.
And that thou bidst me come to thee.
O Lamb of God, I come. I come.”
The lyrics ring true. All Jesus asks of us is that we come, just as we are. His blood is more than enough to cover our past, present, and future.
But that is only the beginning of the relationship. If we come, we begin to learn more. We ask questions, dig deeper, meet some new friends who can help point us in the right direction. It’s a trailhead for a lifetime journey, not a freeway with frequent entry and exit points.
