Isaiah 55:1-7

“Come, everyone who thirsts; come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat!  Come buy wine and milk without money and without price.  Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?  Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.  Incline your ear, and come to me; hear that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.  Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander for the peoples.  Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know, and a nation that did not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel, for He has glorified you.  Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”  [Isaiah 55:1-7]

“To all who received Christ, To those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”  [John 1:12]

Hey!  Listen up!  Look over here!  Pay attention!

Who can drink God’s water?  Hint: “Gracias, mi Dios, para agua puro!”

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”  [Matthew 5:6]

“…and let the one who hears, say, ‘Come.’  And let the one who is thirsty, come; let the one who desires, take the water of life without price.  [Revelation 22:17]

“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.  But I have said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.’”  [John 6:35-36]

Live the promises of y(our) Father!
