Jesus is telling unbelievers to come and believers to overcome! We can see this thorough out the scriptures. Jesus said “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” John 5:39-40
Studying the Bible is completely different than coming to Jesus to have life as we see here in John 5, I came to know that some colleges offer Bible as a subject and even unbelievers can take and study, they can score 100% without coming to Jesus. To the unbelievers Jesus is telling, come! He will give rest and eternal life!
To the believers Jesus is telling overcome! Jesus said, “And I shall grant the overcomer to sit with me on my throne, just as I have overcome and I sit with my Father on his throne.” Revelation 3:21 If we separate the word, it’s over + come! I see that believers who have come to Jesus should come over and over (deeper relationship) with Jesus which is the key for living an overcoming life! Because, without Jesus we can do nothing. Jesus + Something = Nothing. Jesus + Nothing = Everything. We cannot add anything to Jesus because we are called to live through Him, for Him and in Him! Glory to God who sent His Son Jesus to demonstrate His love for us! God loves you!
