“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, that he may have compassion on him,
    and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

Isaiah 55:6-7 ESV

It is not to late. These words given to the prophet Isaiah are just as important now as they were back in that time. This passage is theologically rich. Seek the Lord, Call upon the Lord, Surrender your ways and your thoughts, and the Lord will pardon you. In short, this passage tells us how to enter into a relationship with God. The Lord will show compassion to the ones that return to Him

“I will never leave you nor forsake you”

Hebrews 13:5 ESV

As we can see in the Book of Hebrews, Christ will never leave us so He is always near to us. God cannot be near sin which means that we must change our way of thinking and the way that we live. Let him return to the Lord. That is an interesting statement. We were created by God which makes us His. We are the creature while God is the Creator. He is the potter and we are the clay.

“then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.”

Genesis 2:7 ESV

With all this said, it is not to late to change your thoughts and you way of living and Call upon the Lord. You are not to far from God’s reach. Your life will be forever changed.

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow…”

Isaiah 1:18 ESV

Abundantly Pardoned !!
