Come to me
“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)
It’s a free lunch. But haven’t you heard that there’s no such thing as a free lunch? It’s true to some extent. Someone has to pay. And someone has paid for this, at the cross the price was paid completely with blood, pain, beatings and bruising so that we could come, and come without cost to eat and drink of life.
The only requirement is that you are thirsty. There are many things in the world around us that satisfy our hearts for a moment, but never delivers lasting satisfaction, never really quench our thirst. Somehow we have to get through the deceitfullness of the worlds offerings and come to the free lunch that will truly satisfy. What a spread is laid before us, food that will satisfy, drink that quenches the thirst. Paid for in full.
