|God Loves You|
"Come all you who are thirsty, come to the waters, and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come buy wine and milk, without money and without cost."Isaiah 55:1. NIV.
God Says, "come." four times. God wants us to come to Him.
We may sense a need in our lives,
* It may be a deep hunger for some meaning,
* It may be a sense of loneliness.
* It may be a lack of joy in life.
For these and any other longings, we must come. Our biggest need is the need of salvation, and God offers it with a word- come.
God wants "all" to come, He makes no restrictions. No matter who we are, what we have done, or what sin we are guilty of, He still beckons us to come. All we need to do is to bring our need, our thirst.
It not just to a fountain or a spring, but to the "waters." These "waters" are many, deep, and offers satisfaction that far exceeds our need, like an ocean stretching across the horizon. These waters are no less than God himself.
No matter how broke we are we can buy without "money," We can come empty handed, and still buy. What can we give to God that will match the riches of salvation and fellowship with the Almighty? Salvation and its blessings are priceless; no man can earn it or deserve it, therefore, if any were to obtain salvation it must be by a gift of God.
WINE AND MILK
When we read, "wine and milk," we think of the wine of joy and the milk that completely nourishes, this is a picture of joy and satisfaction.
Put it all together, we can buy and eat," we can come to the "waters," and get the "wine and milk," these pictures speak of all our needs fulfilled, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Why is it, "without money and without cost?" Because Jesus already purchased our salvation by His death on the cross, and with salvation he gives us all we need for life and Godliness.
God invites us to come to him to be saved and we must not stop coming to him, but always seek him to fulfill our needs and to find blessing.
