Hey, I’m Trying To Get Your Attention!

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

Hey, every one of you that is thirsty, come to the waters, and he that has no money; come and buy and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.  Why do you spend money for that which is not bread and your labor for that which satisfies not? Listen diligently unto me, and eat that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in abundance.  Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.  Behold, I have given Him for a witness to the people; a leader and commander to the people.
Isaiah 55:1-4

I know the KJV uses the word “Ho” but if it was in modern days it could be any number of words to get someone’s attention so being from the roots that I sprang from, “Hey” sounded good like “Hey you, I’m talking to you,” etc.

The point is that it seems as though God is reaching out to get our attention.  He is giving a message of a free gift of life if we will believe Him and receive it.  If you have ever been really thirsty then you know how refreshing a cool drink of water is to your mouth and body.  Since Jesus is the water that Isaiah is prophesying about and since He offers that water by which we will never thirst again why would we be so stubborn that we would refuse it?

Those of us who have received Christ as our Savior have found Him to just as the Word of God proclaims Him to be.  There is a Christian song that was popular a few years ago that said, “Only Jesus can satisfy your soul, only He can touch your heart and make you whole.  He’ll give you peace you never knew; sweet love and joy and heaven too; only Jesus can satisfy your soul.”  That is what Isaiah says that God is offering to us and to all who will call on the Lord in faith.

If only the lost souls of this generation would listen, they would find that Jesus will be their best friend and the one and only Savior that they will need and they would find that it all will be theirs free of charge even though what He offers is priceless and precious.  Have we who believe not found it to be so? Perhaps through our witness of wonderful joy we can lead the unsaved to the saving knowledge of Christ.  What do you think?
