Come let us Reason together
Isaiah 1:18 “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.”
This is one of my favorite verses in the Old Testament.
Think of it! The Almighty God wants us to come and give Him our reasons for our behavior.
And He will listen to them, and then, He will give us His reasons for His Way of doing things!
I have always been amazed at that much love to us!
This is reality, sinking deep within your soul. This requires honesty.
We can all blurt out feelings,….things which we may or may not really mean.
But Christ Jesus wants us to get honest, with ourselves (with the help of His Holy Spirit) about what is going on.
And then to tell Him.
“Come” , shows that we are far away from Him. So Come, now.
“Let us” means that this is not one-sided, but “us” talking.
(What a nice word, “us”, when it is the Lord and I)
“Reason together” means that we come, wanting to tell our side, but willing to be corrected, and go to His side.
This is intelligent conversation.
“Though your sins be as scarlet”: and who can say that their’s is not? Not me!
“They shall be white as snow”: by His cleansing us in His precious blood.
He died to save us; was raised to empower us; and intercedes for us in all we do.
If we are born again, He gave us His Holy Spirit, Who is with us always…..Who
helps us to get honest, for He is the God of all Truth;…….and helps us interpret our emotions, so we can see where we truly are,…..and what we truly want.
With God with us, even when we are out of the Way, He will help us.
He is the Creator,…we are His creatures. He created us, for He has a Purpose for us.
And we must come;……always we must come to Him, for all we need.
If we learn the lesson of coming before His throne, as creature before the Creator: knowing our weakness, and His Might, then we have learned a lesson which will be the corner stone of our life.
He calls: Come now, let us reason together.
He wants to hear from you.
And you to hear from Him.
