Isaiah 54-57:14, Eph. 6, Ps. 70, Proverbs 24:8
Imagine with me the Lord Jesus, Savior, Redeemer, Provider… ok … as a Costco Salesman. You know the sales people that offer those treats. Dream as He calls to us individually,
“Delicious, nutritious, healthy Bread Too expensive for you, my friend; But today I give it to you Free!”
After today's reading, I reply, “Only bread, I have troublemakers around me.” My Superlative Salesman then says,
“I will rescue you and fill you with gladness. Come, see I am great.”
Taking a step closer to this Salesman, I think, “My family is hurting and my neighborhood is broken.” And He knows my thoughts…
“Come to Me My Bread will give you strength; You will find life And I will make you glorious.”
I now find myself next to His kiosk and I say, “You are a Superlative Salesman, but the dark spiritual side of my life is frightening and overwhelming.” He looks deep in my eyes.
“Put on My armor. I alone provide with my Bread - helmet to shoes! You will have salvation on your head, Faith to block spiritual attacks, A belt to hold you to My truth, A sword that is My Word, And shoes that will help you spread My peace.”
“Superlative Salesman, you are good, but are you that good? Do you have a warranty?” He drives the bargain home.
“I will accomplish all I want to do and Prosper everywhere I go Buy this Bread!”
I did and it was free.
