CHRISTIAN REFRESHER; ISAIAH 55; 3, 6, 7, KJV
INCLINE YOUR EAR, AND COME UNTO ME; hear, and your soul shall live. And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon him while he is near; Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
