The market scene in Isaiah 55 presents the wonder of God’s grace: ‘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!’
There’s no such thing as a free lunch, so who is paying for this?
GRACE is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Last week, in Isaiah 52:13–53:12, we saw it is God’s Servant who paid the price. That’s the wonder and most fundamental truth of Christianity: Jesus paid it all on the Cross.
God offers us what we crave for most – peace with him and his world. We can’t pay the cost. Only Jesus can do what’s needed. All we can do is accept the invitation by turning to him in trust.
My prayer is that we are known as a church family who love God’s grace and are known as the most generous people for we know how generous God has been to us and know that all we have is his!
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
