A Free Gift that Satisfys

October 14

Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 53 - 55

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 55:1 – “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.”

This is a wonderful verse in Isaiah that calls out to everyone – first to the nation of Israel and then to all others – to receive the salvation that God has to offer. Thirsts is a metaphor in Scripture for desiring that which satisfies the spirit. Waters is a metaphor here for enjoyment in God’s salvation. Water and milk are a metaphor for complete satisfaction. God’s offer of salvation brings about complete fulfillment and satisfaction to the soul who accepts it.

Twice (for emphasis) in this verse it stresses that it cannot be bought – it is truly free. If one desires this salvation, God will freely and fully give it to them. 

How about you? Do you have this gift?

Prayer: Thank You, Father for the free gift that You offer and give to us thru Jesus. Amen.
