Come Now: Gospel Today Devotional - 10th February, 2023

Imagine you were invited to a party, and one of the requirements was to put on a purple shirt, and a pair of blue Jeans. If you do not have such, and let's say you're unable to buy as well, you will decide not to go to the party, right? Because you may not be permitted in, but what if the one who organized the party, said not to worry, and that you should still come even though you do not have the required dress for the party? You'd be happy, isn't it?

Come Now: Gospel Today Devotional - 10th February, 2023

The same thing applies to the text under consideration in today's devotional. It talks about an invitation to still come though it may be that the requirements for coming are not met. Let's examine the text below:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord : though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18).

The Lord in this chapter and verse gives the one who feels there's no hope, and that there will be no pardon, and grace from the Lord the privilege to come. Because he is God who is forgiving in nature, and though it seems to the one who is to come that he may be subjected to condemnation, the Lord promises hope, salvation, and reconciliation.

It doesn't matter what you've done he says, it may be as scarlet (a bright red color); very terrible, and unforgiving, and it may be as red as crimson(a deep purplish red color), he says he will wash, cleanse, and pardon( as white as snow or as wool).

He says to come as to reason together (acknowledge, confess, and turn to him accepting Christ as Lord, and Saviour, and in return, he will declare you free, saved, justified, and adopted). This is the invitation he gives; an invitation to come not later but now.

To the one who has never been to him, he says to come. It doesn't matter what you've done. He is ever ready to pardon, forgive, and declare you innocent. To the believer who perhaps is under condemnation as a result of an offense committed, the Lord extends his invitation to you, he says to come, and to stop living in condemnation, he will forgive and receive you wholly to himself again. May these words comfort your hearts today. Amen.

Thought for the day: It may be that you've done things so terrible that you feel you can never be forgiven, pardoned, and justified; but the Lord says to come regardless, and that he will forgive, pardon, and justify.
