Passage: Isaiah 55:1 & 1 Corinthians 1:30-31

He That Hath No Money

…and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price

(ISAIAH 55:1)

God only bids one kind of person to come to Christ, the sinner.  The sinner is one who has nothing: no merit, no worthiness, no righteousness, nothing. Why? If I come with anything at all then Christ will not be my All! If I have wisdom then I will not trust Christ to be all my Wisdom; if I have righteousness then I will not rest in Christ to be all my Righteousness; if I am able to make myself holy by my works then Christ will not be all my Sanctification [1 CORINTHIANS 1:30-31]; if I think I can redeem myself from the curse of the law then I will not look to Christ to pay all the debt I owe to God and his justice. Salvation is free to those who come with nothing because it cost God’s only begotten Son everything. If you have nothing then God says, “Come buy without money and without price!”
