2/3/14

2/3/14, Right now I've encouraged the staff, elders, and deacons to read the book, Dangerous Calling, by Paul David Tripp. In the book Tripp mentions Isaiah 55, so I decided to spend some of my personal worship time meditating on the chapter. It opens with a great invitation, "Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. (Isaiah 55:1 ESV). The reality for me is that I'm thirsty but I often drink the wrong thing. Like drinking soda after working out, I'm thirsty so I drink what ever is available. The Lord invites us to drink water....which he later explains is His Word What do I drink? What do I look to for satisfying? The pleasure of food? The security of money? The thrill of reputation or power? The grace of it is that God doesn't shun me for drinking the wrong thing, but invites me to drink what will truly satisfy. Thank you Father.
