Virginia Brandt Berg's Meditation Moments

Virginia Brandt Berg (1898-1968)


Meditation Moments 23:

We turn to one of the most precious passages in the Word of God, "Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money, come ye, buy and eat; yea come buy wine and milk without money and without price.

"Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread and your labor for that which satisfieth not? Hearken diligently unto me and eat ye that which is good and let your soul delight itself in fatness!" (Isa.55:1-2)

This wonderful passage tells of the promise of Jesus Christ, calling to faith and repentance, and He tells you here of the blessings that will accrue to those that would accept the invitation.

The greatest of all supernatural things to me is that Christ, the incarnate Savior, should plead with us in all of our emptiness to come and partake of His riches and glory! So marvelous! He says if you're thirsty in soul, Come! If you're hungry of heart, Come!

And he that hath no money, come without money and without price! He's saying also in this passage, Nothing has satisfied you, you still have that emptiness, that aching void. You spent your money for that which is not bread and your labor for that which satisfied not, now come and eat that which is good, let your soul delight itself!

God's Word declares Jesus Christ is a satisfying portion, and you know that millions have testified that that is so, that He has satisfied every desire of their needy souls, and that when they knew nothing but the World's wages, spending money for that which satisfied not, that Christ came into their life!

There dawned upon their dark souls a light that never is on land or sea. As God's Word puts it, "The light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." -- You are listening in, the one that has never known Him, He knows that you don't care about Him!

He knows just what you are, yet He humbles Himself and stoops down to your very level and He pleads with you to come. He said, "Come unto Me, hear and your soul shall live." Isn't it wonderful that you're still alive and God is giving you another chance? That you're still in the place of hope, you still have the opportunity to meet the Savior? He says in another Scripture:

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come into him and sup with him, and he with Me." -- Another wonderful "Come!" He just says, come, come, come, all the time!

If you could only realize dimly what a satisfying portion Christ is, you'd leap to accept this invitation of His! God grand that you'll not leap too late, for as sure as you're there listening to this invitation and we're here telling you of it from God's Word, just so sure the Judgment Day is coming.

And in that hour you'll know too late that He was that bread of life that could have utterly satisfied your hunger, but instead you spent your all for that which satisfied not. And you will know then that He was a Fountain of Living Water, but you refused to come to Him and drink. Oh, that's a tragedy!

In that hour you'll remember how He pleaded here, "incline your ear and come unto Me, hear and your soul shall live," for His Word also says "This is life eternal, to know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent." So many scores of times He says Come, come!

Dwight L. Moody was asked one time just what was meant by "come." "Tell us what it is to come." And Moody said, "I've given up trying to explain it. I always feel like the colored minister who said he was going to confound the Scripture about this, instead of saying he was going to expound it!" -- And if I go into too much detail, I might confound it!

Surely you know what the simple word "come" means? It's just the loving call of the Father God to your heart to come to Him and partake of the riches of glory, Salvation, eternal life. Now do you ask how to obtain this Bread that satisfies and the Springs of Life that never dry up?

Just as we've said, it's just for the asking! Tonight there in your bedroom alone, or there by your radio now, get to God and accept His gracious invitation! He says, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out." Note again in closing, the closing words in this 55th chapter of Isaiah.

"Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near," and then Verse 7 closes with these words, "He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon" -- If the wicked will forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts and return unto the Lord!

Won't you in return accept His invitation? He loves you and calls for you to come. God reigns tonight, and how He can change your life! He's still on the Throne and prayer changes things.

Tess and James Arendt
James & Tess Arendt

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.
