I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
Revelation 21: 6.

In the Spanish-American war (1898) Theodore Roosevelt was the commander of a regiment of soldiers. The provision of food being sparse, many men were ill. Roosevelt then learned that the Red Cross had obtained fresh fruit and vegetables. He inquired whether he might purchase some and was prepared to pay for it himself. However, they would not sell him any. When he complained, someone said to him, “Just try asking them!” Roosevelt was taken aback and said with a smile, “Is it as easy as that? Then I now ask for some food!” And he received it, free of charge.

Many people make the same mistake regarding God’s gracious gift of eternal life (Romans 6: 23). They want to do something for it. One comes with a pre-formulated prayer; another promises to live a better life from then on, while a third imagines his membership of a religious fellowship can save him.

Redemption can be obtained solely as a gift. God’s Word states: “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy … without money and without price” (Isaiah 55: 1).

Our pride resists, as we would rather pay, even if the price of redemption were low. But God is too rich in grace to sell it, and we are too poor to be able to buy it. Morally we are bankrupt, but God is ready to forgive and meets sinners with love, grace and mercy (cf. Isaiah 55: 7). Sinners must come empty-handed and be prepared to accept redemption as a gift.

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 19: 18 – 20: 4 · Psalms 106: 1 – 15
