Buy For Free.....

Isaiah 55 is one of my favorites Old Testament it sometime, how about right now? Verse 1 says, "Ho, (Hey, my translation) Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost."

Isn't that an interesting thought? Come's for free. Not much in this life is really free. I'm always getting those "free" offers in the mail...there is always a catch. Is there a "catch" with God? Is there a catch here in Isaiah 55?

Verse 2 say, "Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance."

What is abundant? The "food" we are to buy for free...and eat abundantly from. It will satisfy. Do you know what that food is? It is the Word of God. It is the Lord...He reveals Himself in His Word and satisfies our hungry souls with His Food and Himself. There is no catch. There is just buy for free. He will be abundantly Enough and He will satisfy. Are you hungry and what are you eating today?

Hi Mandi,

Loving your blogging.
I wonder why we seem to love to get the quick fix fast food (spiritually speaking) when Jesus has all this free abundant food for us to devour!
I love that scripture and even know a song to it.
