Come to the Savior Now


And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17

Squire Parsons is one of my favorite male Gospel artists. I know the lyrics of several of his songs by memory.  One song though has escaped me for years, Come to the Savior Now.  I loved the hymn back in the 1980s. This week while searching for a certain song on YouTube Come to the Savior Now was offered as an option.  Oh, how much I now remember! 

Lately, as world and national events unfold and morals decline, the lost, dying world has been on my mind.  No one knows the time of Christ’s return but we given warnings in the Bible. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all (Luke 17:26-27). But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is (Mark 13:32-33). Friends, even if Christ’s return is not imminent we have no guarantee of tomorrow, not even tonight. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided (Luke 12:19-20). We only have now, this moment. Once we die there is no more opportunity. Our fate is sealed, forever, wherever that be in Heaven or hell. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).  

Each of you who has never put your trust in Christ, not in a pastor, a priest, a pope, a rabbi, God has put you on my heart. Please, while there is time, seek Christ, search the Scriptures and your heart, talk to a nearby Christian. Please do not delay.  For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Cor 6:2). God is not a liar. He told us this is His word. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish (Luke 13:2-3).  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:17-18).

Yet, you need not perish. Place your trust in Christ today. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:14-16). Again, please seek Christ while he may be found. Feel free to leave a comment if you would like me to pray for you. 

Squire Parsons wrote the words and music to Come to the Savior Now. The song was included in the album He Redeemed Me, copyright by Squire Parsons (1983).

Can you not hear a voice calling you?
Come to the savior now.
Promising you new life anew.
Come to the savior now.

Refrain

Can you not see time is running out?
Come to the savior now.
So bring all your burdens, your fears, your doubts.
Come to the savior now.

Sufficient grace can be yours today.
Just come to the savior now.
There’s grace to sustain you along life’s way.
Come to the savior now.

Refrain

Refrain:

Come to the savior.
Come to the savior.
Trust him today and no longer delay.
Come to the savior now.
