Edifier du Jour-Isaiah 1:17-19(NASB)
18 "Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. 19 "If you consent and obey, You will eat the best of the land; 20 "But if you refuse and rebel, You will be devoured by the sword." Truly, the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
God wants a reasoned consent from us. There are two parts to the contract-we follow His guidence and He helps us now and eternally. This verse is addressed to Israel, but it still has meaning to us. Our sins are there to be forgiven by God and we will be looked after in life; if we don't follow God, we will ultimately be judged by his word (the Sword of the Word of God in Ephesisans 6:17). A resonable person might well consider that a fair trade.
