Nate Furness: "Thirsty"
It was a hot and grueling day. We had spent most of the day trudging along a dusty part. For the last mile and a half, we were exposed to the sun. Our mouths were dry and we began dreaming of cool water and ice cream. Later, as we sat atop Hale Dome, we thought up a brilliant business plan; sell cold drinks and tasty food to desperate hikers, especially those who were presaged. In this world, it seems we are often thinking of ourselves and how we can get ahead. How do we change this way of thing? Ho can make our church a place where people, on a long and weary journey, can come to find rest and nourishment?
Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. 2 Why do you [a]spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David. 4 Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people. 5 Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” 6 Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. 7 Let the [b]wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.
