When Lyndon Johnston was the Vice-President of the United States, he visited Karachi, Pakistan. He shook hands with people at random. But when he noticed camel driver Bashir Ahmad, he said to him good naturedly “Come over and see me in America.” Local newsmen picked up the story and diplomatic machinery began to move. Because Ahmad took Johnston at his word, he had a transatlantic flight and a sight-seeing trip, not to be soon forgotten. And did you know that a wonderful promise was issued to all of us by the Lord Jesus, King of Kings. He invites, “ Come unto me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give your rest.” Politicians do not always keep their promises, but the Savior does. When we take Him at His Word, He offers forgiveness, and the gift of eternal life. No one, who sincerely calls on Him is ever turned away, because our Lord also said, “Him who comes to me I will in now wise cast out.
