“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. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David. See, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a ruler and commander of the peoples. Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.”
Eat What is Good
Do you click on those mouth-watering food pictures on social media? Have you noticed what happens? The companies who sell the food realize that you might buy something, so they arrange to show you more good pictures with links to purchase. They show you reviews of people who have bought, tasted, and enjoyed their food. They invite you to join a group of fans who love their product.
God offers you satisfying, rich spiritual food. He promises you the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation through faith in Jesus. He says you can live without guilt now because he has removed it. God’s food is free for you because Jesus has paid for it.
God invites you to read David’s review in Psalm 34:8: “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
God invites you to see the splendor of people who trust him and to become a fan, no matter where you live. You can trust this offer because God is perfectly holy. You can enjoy this offer because God is love.
What are you waiting for? Listen to God and eat what is good!
Heavenly Father, thank you for supplying me with my salvation without money and without cost, through Jesus Christ, my Lord, the Holy One of Israel. Amen.
