DAILY READINGS: Joshua 23:1-16; Isaiah 17:1-18:7; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17

Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18a

Come unto me…and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 

He sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, “Come, for everything is now ready.” Luke 14:17

Three invitations are given by the Lord personally and sent to you. The first concerns our sins—though like scarlet, they can be as white as snow. The second call is to rest. We are without peace until we find rest in Christ. The third invitation is in parable form. It’s an invitation to a great supper—God’s great salvation by His grace. All is prepared and ready for you. Don’t pass up God’s gracious invitations. —Rex Trogdon

Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night, Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come; Into
Thy freedom, gladness, and light, Jesus, I come to Thee. —W. Sleeper
