Come unto Christ is a phrase you may have heard and said to others. So where did it come from and what does it mean? First off, it is found in (King James Version) Matthew: 28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Wow! An invitation and promise.
