JULY 27,  COME WITH YOUR EARS WIDE OPEN

Today’s readings are Isaiah 53 – 56 and II Peter 2.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

Are you thirsty?  Are you hungry?  Then come to God.  Don’t come in ignorance, with a sense of doom, fearing what you will hear him say.  Instead, come with your ears wide open. Because what you‘ll hear are God’s words of love – a love that will never fail. Isaiah 55:3 says:

Come to me with your ears wide open.  Listen, and you will find life.  I will make an everlasting covenant with you.  I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David.

See how rich and generous the gifts of God are, for the hungry, thirsty, and broken! It’s beyond what we can imagine. We close our ears to God, because we fear we will hear words of judgement and rejection. But Isaiah says to open them wide. 

Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,  so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. (Isa 55: 7,9 NLT)

His thoughts are far beyond our thoughts, or anything we could ever imagine.  And the generous food that he gives to the hungry, that opens eyes and minds to his heart and his ways, is his Word.  Isaiah 55:11 says:

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

All of this is an everlasting sign of his power and his love.  So look up, Thirsty One, and see what God has done.  He has sent his ultimate Word to us, His Son.  Open your ears wide and hear God’s answer to your thirst, hunger and brokenness – the Living Word.  

Come to me with your ears wide open.  Listen, and you will find life.

God has made an everlasting covenant with you and He will give you all the unfailing love your broken heart needs.
