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
  • Family
  • Friends
  • 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.
