"Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost."
- Isaiah 55:1
 
This is one verse my grandfather preached often and he said he thought it was one of the grandest chapters in the Bible. It begins with a great invitation in which the LORD offers salvation to men without money and without price.

When we consider the character of the Giver, it becomes clear that His gifts of grace must be without money and without price. Would we ask God to sell His pardon, to peddle forgiveness at so much per head? Could we picture Jesus saying to Martha and Mary: "Bring Me all that you have, and I will restore your brother to life?" How weary our LORD must be with man's attempt to bargain with Him. His large heart scorns and despises every bribe.
 
Christian friends, don't let foolish pride keep you from receiving the greatest of all gifts. Acknowledge your sin and helplessness. Believe what God has said. Put your trust in Jesus Christ. He has already made things square for us.
 
      Rejoice my soul, the debt is paid,
      For all my sins on Christ were laid;
      Estrangement once was all I knew,
      But now I know His love so true.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - How tragic that people pay a high price for being lost when salvation is free.
