Scripture: Isaiah 55:6-7
The Biblical response to an offer of the covenant of Sure Mercy is in verses 6 and 7 of our passage. It says, “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the Lord and He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.” The first response is to seek the Lord. The second response is to call upon Him. The third response is forsake all wickedness and to make sure that we start agreeing with all that God says and we start thinking as He thinks, that we fully return to Him and receive His mercy and accept His pardon. As we do these things and offer them to others, then that covenant of Sure Mercy becomes the primary redeeming feature in our lives.
