The Good News - The Greatest Invitation

Good News
The Greatest Invitation

     During a recent week, I received several invitations in the mail. Those inviting me to attend "free" seminars on retirement, real estate, and life insurance were immediately thrown away. But the  invitation to a gathering honoring a longtime friend caused me to reply immediately, "Yes! I accept". Invitation +Desire = Acceptance.

     Isaiah 55:1 is one of the great invitations in the Bible. The Lord said to his people who were in difficult circumstances, "Come,  all of you who are thirsty, come to these waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money or other cost." This is God's remarkable offer of inner nourishment, deep spiritual satisfaction, and everlasting life (vv. 2-3)

     Jesus's invitation is repeated in the last chapter of the Bible: "The Spirit and the bride say 'Come!' And let the  one who hears say, "Come!" Let the the one who is thirsty come;  and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life" (Rev. 22-17)

     We often think of eternal life as beginning when we die. In reality, it begins when we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.

     God's invitation to find eternal life in Him is the greatest invitation of all! Invitation + Desire = Acceptance.

    Lord Jesus, thank You for Your promise of mercy, pardon, and eternal life. I acknowledge my failures and receive Jesus Christ as my Savior today.

     When we accept Jesus's invitation to follow Him, our whole life changes direction.
