January 20, 2006 - An Everlasting Covenant

Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you-- The sure mercies of David. - Isaiah 55:3

God had said in verse one of chapter 55 that if we are thirsty, we should come to God. I have often wondered if there was a better word the New King James Bible could have used instead of "Ho" in verse one. "Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. (55:1)" It could easily have said, "Hey you, yeah you!" Who among us is not thirsty for something? Who doesn't hunger for a better life? But lest we forget the everlasting and eternal God who gave us new life in Jesus Christ, we should remember that when we came to Him we were poor sinful creatures. Both the rich and poor can come to God through Christ Jesus. It doesn't take money but faith. But notice if you will in verse three that God says that He will make an "everlasting covenant" with "you." The word you is a personal word meaning each one who comes to God for water and food. The wine of the New Covenant and the milk of the word of God are offered to anyone who has need. Verse one makes it clear that God is offering heavenly food for our thirsty soul. But notice that in verse one God offers this covenant to "you" and "me" not just the Jew or the religious. Did you see that? God is directly talking to individuals and promising an eternal covenant which never can be broken. It cannot be walked away from or given back. An eternal covenant cannot be eternal if it is limited.
