FREE - Giveaway!!! Wine, milk, food, water...

So, here are the details.

Feeling thirsty today?  For something, but not sure what?

Have no money?

You have an invitation - if you truly thirst to receive the water you need, the food you need and even the riches of wine and milk!




The One Who offers you these things - free of charge - asks you to consider a few things as well.




What are you working for?  Day after day, investing yourself, time, energies, efforts - into what?  Does it satisfy?  Does it fill you up?



Sometimes I find I am spinning my wheels - expending energies on useless pursuits.  I am not filling myself with what truly satisfies - I am frittering away time with la-de-da.  Sometimes, I am sure, a little la-de-da is fulfilling and satisfying.  It is when I lose my days, hours and energy to basic fluff nothingness that I realize I am labouring for things that do not satisfy.


But where does satisfaction come from?  How can we be content in life - filled - satisfied - joyful?


By listening to the One Who extends you this invitation - He invites you to eat, drink, listen, grow, rejoice in, learn from and fill yourself...in Him.  He will fill your soul with the 'richest of fare.'


His water is life-giving water.  It springs eternal from within.  It lasts - forever.  It becomes a well springing up from inside you, never to run dry.  It is better than the purest mineral water available on your high-end grocer's shelves.  It quenches the thirst of the longing soul.


And He offers you these things free - without money and without cost.  He invites you to listen to Him, seek Him while He may be found.


Don't believe me?


This offer has been standing for ages.  It has been available for centuries.  It is a broad, ridiculously generous offer - but so few have availed themselves of it.  Read it for yourself:

Isaiah 55

Invitation to the Thirsty

 “Come, all you who are thirsty, 
    come to the waters; 
and you who have no money,
    come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk 
    without money and without cost. 
Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy? 
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. 
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    my faithful love promised to David. 
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
    a leader and commander of the peoples.
Surely you will summon nations you know not,
    and nations that do not know you will hasten to you, 
because of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendor.”
Seek the Lord while he may be found; 
    call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
    and the evil man his thoughts. 
Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,” 
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, 
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts. 
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish, 
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty, 
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy 
    and be led forth in peace; 
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands. 
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown, 
    for an everlasting sign,
    which will not be destroyed.”
