Episode 316 Come to the Waters (Isaiah 55:1-13)

December 5, 2021

This week BibleWorm reads Isaiah 55:1-13, a gorgeous poem of hope, persuasion, urgency and witness. Set either right near the end of the exile or right afterwards, it paints the picture of a limited window of time when God is ready to be sought and found, preserving a sense of God’s freedom, saying it is time, right now, to make a move toward God. But while this divine unpredictability might sound a little frightening, it also underscores the vastly forgiving nature of God. And finally, it elevates the natural world as a witness -- to God’s power, and to our lives – offering yet another connection between us and the divine.
