(The Lord is calling us, beckoning us, summoning us.
He knows the need, the thirst in our life,
the parched, dry yearning for salvation and redemption from the cares of our life.
He invites us to His refreshing rivers of plenty, of provision and support.
He invites us to drink long and deep from His river
of mercy and provision and grace and love.
His river of love holds the source of thirst-quenching answers to all our needs.)
and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!"
(The Lord offers us a feast, a banquet table filled with all the goodness
of His strength and joy and hope and encouragement.
He pleads with us to come to His banquet table.
He knows we have nothing to offer in payment for the banquet He lays before us.
His buffet, though costly to Him through the death of His Son,
is absolutely free of charge to us.
It is His gift of grace to which we can contribute nothing except our acceptance.
He invites us to come and dine with Him as the son and daughter of the King,
to bless us so mightily that we stagger
under the weight of the wealth of our relationship with our Lord.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
