Today’s Scripture Selection: Isaiah 1:18
“’Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’”
I’ve always liked this passage from the prophet Isaiah because it reminds me that God is “reasonable.”
What I mean is, God appeals to our whole selves – body, mind, spirit – and reason is a part of that.
Whatever it takes to reach us – that’s what God will employ:
- Life circumstances
- Life choices
- Our vocational choice
- Our economic situation
- Our health
- What we think, feel, or do about any number of things
- And much more.
God wants to reach us – with love and grace and hope and direction.
But we are “free” creatures – by His design.
So nothing is forced upon us. We are not puppets on a string.
So – why not take God’s loving invitation to “reason” together with Him?
You might be surprised what you learn.
Prayer: Lord, use both my heart and mind to commune with me. AMEN.
