Eat the good

Posted on Posted in Love, Promises

                                                 … of the land!

The Bible tells us quite plainly that

      If you are willing and obedient,
      You shall eat the good of the land;
      Isaiah 1 19

However, many will tell you
… that they are obedient to God’s Word,
… and willing to do what it says,
yet they don’t seem to be eating the good of the land.
Why not?
We always want to do something to deserve God’s goodness
… but all that doing brings us nothing.

      Come now, and let us reason together, Says the Lord,
      Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
      Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
      Isa 1 18

So what is God telling us and what are we supposed to do?

Simply receive what God has already done through Jesus,
… and live that life that expresses what He has done.

      You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
      with all your soul, and with all your mind.

      This is the first and great commandment.
      And the second is like it:
      You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
      Matt 22 37-40

If you are willing to receive God’s love through Jesus,
and live love as Jesus taught us

      You WILL eat the good of the land!
