Scripture reading for July 27th: Song of Songs 6-8, Isaiah 1
Key Scriptures: Isaiah 1:18-20 “”Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land; but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Isaiah was called to prophesy to God’s people in Judah and Israel during a time of rebellion and apostasy. The Lord spoke through him to call the people of God back to a right relationship. They had a choice to make. They could willingly repent and return to God or they could continue to resist and rebel. They could eat the best of the land or be devoured by the sword. The choice looked simple to a reasonable person!
Thankful for washing: “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1st Corinthians 6:9-11
