Theme of the Week: God’s Promises for All Times
Bible Verse: “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. Isaiah 45:22
Scripture Reading: Matthew 11:25-30
Have you ever bought a house and believed that just a fresh coat of paint would do the job? Then after that, you realize that it had put in motion a domino effect or a chain reaction of events?
There are promises of God that are just like that. It’s like a trigger that sets into motion a chain reaction that opens up more possibilities to walk with the Lord and experience deeper fellowship and care. C.H. Spurgeon refers to God’s promise of salvation in this excerpt from his book, The Promises of God:
This is a promise of promises.
It lies at the foundation of our spiritual life. Salvation comes through turning to look to him who is “a righteous God and a Savior” (Isa. 45:21). How simple is the direction! “Turn to me.” How reasonable is the requirement! Surely the creature should turn toward the Creator.
We have looked elsewhere long enough. It is time to look alone to him who invites our expectation and promises to give us his salvation. Only a look! Will we not turn to look at once?
We are to bring nothing in ourselves, but to look outward and upward to our Lord on his throne, to where he has gone up from the cross. A look requires no preparation, no vigorous effort. It needs neither wit nor wisdom, wealth nor strength. All that we need is in the Lord our God.
God’s promise to save you and me is his very promise to give of himself to you, unhindered and unmeasured. As C.H. Spurgeon puts it, “If we turn to him for everything, that everything will be ours, and we will be saved.”
