“Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live;” (Isaiah 55:3)
“Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David. Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples. Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the LORD your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.” (Isaiah 55:3–5)
To know Jesus is to listen to Him. Jesus beckons us to lean in, to listen, to linger for awhile. He invites us to sit back, relax, hang out and hear His Words. So, let the cleansing words of forgiveness seep into the depths of your soul. Let the sweet words of mercy illumine the dark corners of your heart. Let the sure Words of inclusion bring you home to the One who promises to always be with you.
