R-17 GOD’S INVITATION 上帝的呼請
Isaiah 55:1a, 2a-3, 6-7; 1:18; John 7:37; Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat...
Why do you spend money for what is not bread, ...
Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with 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,
And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“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.
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
