An Invitation

Isaiah 55:6-13

6-Seek the Lord while He may be found;call on Him while He is near.7-Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon. 8– “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways”, declares the Lord. 9-“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher that your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”. 10-As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 11-“so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. 12-You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and the trees of the field will clap their hands. 13-Instead of the thorn-bush will grow the pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.  This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an everlasting sign, which will not be destroyed.”
