Bible in a Year: 1 Kings 21–22; Luke 23:26–56

Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live.
Isaiah 55:3

Today's Scripture & Insight: Isaiah 55:1-6

I peeked over the grape-stake fence that encloses our backyard. There I saw folks running, jogging, walking, and shuffling around the track that surrounds the park behind our home. I used to do that when I was stronger, I thought. And a wave of dissatisfaction washed over me.

Later, while reading the Scriptures, I came across Isaiah 55:1, “Come, all you who are thirsty,” and I realized again that dissatisfaction (thirst) is the rule, not the exception in this life. Nothing, not even the good things of life, can fully satisfy. If I had strong legs like a Sherpa (mountain-climbing guide), there would still be something else in my life that I’d be unhappy about.

Our culture is always telling us in one way or another that something we do, buy, wear, spray on, roll on, or ride in will give us endless pleasure. But that’s a lie. We can’t get complete satisfaction from anything in the here and now, no matter what we do.

Rather, Isaiah invites us to come again and again to God and the Scriptures to hear what He has to say. And what does He say? His love for David of old is “everlasting” and “faithful” (v. 3). And that goes for you and me as well! We can “come” to Him.

By David H. Roper

Reflect & Pray
In what ways are you thirsty? How can knowing God is faithful help you today?

Whom have we, Lord, but Thee, soul thirst to satisfy? Exhaustless spring! The waters free! All other streams are dry. Mary Bowley
