Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

The Prince of Life, Isa_55:4, r.v. Four times in the New Testament this title is applied to our Lord, and always in connection with His Resurrection. See Act_3:14-15; Act_5:31; Heb_2:9-10; Heb_12:2, where the words prince, author, and captain, are various translations of the same Greek word. The meaning of the original word is file leader. He leads out of death into life; out of defeat into victory; out of suffering into perfection; out of the sorrow and pain of discipline into the triumph of the sons of light.
The everlasting covenant, Isa_55:3. David’s sin could not cancel the sure mercies of God. See 2Sa_7:14-16 and 2Sa_23:5. God will never go back on that covenant which includes us! See Heb_8:1-13. God’s mercies in Christ are sure. Listen! Come! Hear! We are not only forever safe, but we are provided against all want.
God’s abundant provision is described under several terms: waters, wine, milk, wholesome and satisfying bread, the good, fatness, Isa_55:1-2. We are blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ, Eph_1:3. And because God’s thoughts and ways are not as ours, the result is the transformation of thorns into firs and briars into myrtles.
