An Invitation from Jesus

Isa 53:3-6 (TLB) 
{3} We despised him and rejected him--
a man of sorrows, acquainted with bitterest grief.
 We turned our backs on him and looked the other way when he went by. 
He was despised, and we didn't care. 
{4} Yet it was our grief he bore, our sorrows that weighed him down.
 And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, 
for his own sins!

 {5} But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. 
He was beaten that we might have peace; 
he was lashed--and we were healed! 
{6} We--every one of us--have strayed away like sheep! 
We, who left God's paths to follow our own. 
Yet God laid on him the guilt and sins of every one of us!

Mat 11:28-30 (KJV) 

{Jesus says}
 {28} Come unto me, 
all ye that labour and are heavy laden, 
and I will give you rest. 
{29} Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; 
for I am meek and lowly in heart: 
and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 
{30} For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Isa 45:21b-23 (TLB) 
...{21b} For there is no other God but me--
a just God and a Savior--no, not one! 
{22} Let all the world look to me for salvation! 
For I am God; there is no other. 
{23} I have sworn by myself, and I will never go back on my word,
 for it is true--that every knee in all the world shall bow to me, 
and every tongue shall swear allegiance to my name."

Isa 55:1-3 (TLB) 
{1} "Say there! Is anyone thirsty? 
Come and drink--even if you have no money! 
Come, take your choice of wine and milk--it's all free! 
{2} Why spend your money on food that doesn't give you strength?
 Why pay for groceries that do you no good?

Listen and I'll tell you where to get good food that fattens up the soul! 
{3} "Come to me with your ears wide open. 
Listen, for the life of your soul is at stake. 
I am ready to make an everlasting covenant with you, 
to give you all the unfailing mercies and love that I had for King David.

Rev 3:15-21 (TLB) 
{15} "I know you well--you are neither hot nor cold;
 I wish you were one or the other! 
{16} But since you are merely lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth! 
{17} "You say, 'I am rich, with everything I want; I don't need a thing!'
 And you don't realize that spiritually you are wretched and miserable 
and poor and blind and naked. 

{18} "My advice to you is to buy pure gold from me, gold purified by fire--
only then will you truly be rich.
 And to purchase from me and to get medicine from me to heal your eyes 
and give you back your sight. 

{19} I continually discipline and punish everyone I love; 
so I must punish you unless you turn from your indifference 
and become enthusiastic about the things of God. 

{20} "Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. 
If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door,
 I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me. 
{21} I will let everyone who conquers sit beside me on my throne, 
just as I took my place with my Father on his throne when I had conquered. 

John 6:37-40 (KJV) 
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 
and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 
{38} For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,
 but the will of him that sent me. 

{39} And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 
that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 
but should raise it up again at the last day. 
{40} And this is the will of him that sent me, 
that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, 
may have everlasting life: 
and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 7:37-38 (KJV) 
In the last day, that great day of the feast, 
Jesus stood and cried, saying,
 If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 
{38} He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, 
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
