Discussion for Isaiah 55:6

  • Sunday Levinus Alaka on Isaiah 55:6
    Here is a gracious offer of pardon, and peace, and of all happiness. It shall not be in vain to seek God, now his word is calling to us, and his Spirit is striving with us. But there is a day coming when he will not be found. There may come such a time in this life; it is certain that at death and judgment the door will be shut. There must be not only a change of the way, but a change of the mind. We must alter our judgments about persons and things. It is not enough to break off from evil practices, we must strive against evil thoughts. To repent is to return to our Lord, against whom we have rebelled. If we do so, God will multiply to pardon, as we have multiplied to offend. But let none trifle with this plenteous mercy, or use it as an occasion to sin. Men's thoughts concerning sin, Christ, and holiness, concerning this world and the other, vastly differ from God's; but in nothing more than in the matter of pardon. We forgive, and cannot forget; but when God forgives sin, he remembers it no more.

  • Olabode on Isaiah 55:6
    who knows when God will be found? Who knows when God is near? God can be found every where, anytime. What we need to do is for us to draw closer to Him always by not postponing our salvation.
  • Andrew on Isaiah 55:6

    It is important for us to seek the Lord, and not for God to seek us. He has already done so much for us, already made a way, so why not go to him and take it all. It is free, no charge. So do not wait, take it now.
