Come Thirsty. Find Satisfaction

June 23, 2013

Passage: Isaiah 55:1-5 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: Come Thirsty

Length: 45 mins 1 sec Plays: 2757

If it were not for the truth unfolded in Isaiah 53, there would be no possibility for the gracious invitation set forth in Isaiah 55.  Throughout this entire section (chapters 49-57), God is presenting His chosen Servant, our Lord Jesus Christ, as the Redeemer of Israel and the whole world.  Jesus’ rejection at his first coming was foreknown and plainly predicted.  It would be through His suffering and satisfying work on the cross that guilty sinners like us could find peace with God and pardon for all of our transgressions. Because of Jesus’ saving work, God can offer the gracious invitation for all men everywhere to partake of His salvation.  You see, only in Christ can bankrupt and destitute humanity find satisfaction and fulfillment.  There is a longing in every heart that only Jesus can satisfy.  So he calls to us this morning, “Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live!”
