The Way Home

We were both relaxed as we heard the voice announcing the boarding time for families with children (not us) and first class (also not us). Anticipating the usual long wait in the airport, we continued reading calmly until departure time.

Listening to the Word

Listen, Listen

Isaiah 53-56; 2 Peter 2

“Listen, listen to me and eat what is good and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; hear me that your soul may live…seek the Lord while he may be found…” Isaiah 55:2-3, 6

What we delight in we pursue and invest in. The most creative, loving, all powerful, dynamic Being in the universe desires relationship with us and wants to speak to us. His invitation to us is that we come, that we seek Him, and that we listen to Him. God’s words are personal, they are loving, they are life giving and they are satisfying to our soul. We were made to commune with God as our best friend. When God’s words come we eat them, digest them and they nourish us.
What are we eating today? Is it satisfying? Why are we not listening to the life giving Spirit of God?

Lord Jesus, my ears are open to you today. You are my life and what I delight in. Thank you for your invitation to seek your face today.

Pray also for their children, that they would be encouraged in their faith and united in purpose.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. - Philippians 2:1-3
