Seek Ye the Lord   1 comment

Isa. 55, 6-7

1.  Sin separated man from God, turned him into ways of sinfulness and every evil work.  Whatever religion may do for a man, he must be turned away from his sinful ways.

2.  Mercy is the only hope of man–sinners.  At our best we need His mercy to cover and forgive our failures.

3.  To obtain mercy man mus seek the Lord of mercy.  Not enough merely to wish one was saved–must seek Him, must pray for His grace, turning away from all sin.  “Seek and ye shall find.”  “Let the wicked forsake his way…and let him return unto the Lord.”  You wandered away; now return to Him.

4.  When do this?  Now while He may be found, now while He is near.  Not to call now is to reject Him for the present.  Tomorrow is the devil’s plea; now is God’s time.  Tomorrow may be too late.

5.  For he will abundantly pardon.  Will forgive the past, graciously, abundantly.  He desires to do it now.  He “delighteth in mercy.”

He calls lovingly, pleadingly, and anxiously awaits your action.

Will you heed him now?
