The following sermon was preached by Rev. Calum I. Macleod on the Sabbath Evening of 17th of May, 2009. The summons of The Lord is to everyone to “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found”. This is a word especially to those who know that they ought to seek Him but will not. J.C. Ryle said of those that heard the word but would not respond, “The same fire which melts the wax hardens the clay”. In this text The Lord is saying that, “there is no sin in your life too great for me to pardon”….so why won’t you come to Him?
The text is Isaiah 55:6-9 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. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (This recording contains the entire service).
he will abundantly pardon.
