When we think about soul winning, the Roman’s road, John 3:16, or 1 John 5:11-13 usually come to mind. Has Isaiah 55 ever crossed your path?
Verses 1-3, speak about salvation. It is for everyone. It is free. In this case, water illustrates salvation.
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Verses 6-9, speak of seeking the Lord, forsaking wickedness, and the thoughts of God.
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Verse 11, speaks of God’s word. It shall not return void (without fruit). It will prosper.
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
We are challenged to:
- Get saved
- Seek the Lord
- Call upon the Lord
- Forsake wickedness
- Understand that God’s thoughts are higher than my thoughts
- God’s word will not return void (without fruit)
- It will prosper
Have a wonderful day.
