I have always loved this line, “Come let us reason together.” This is spoken, most remarkably, by the creator of the universe. He who made the Heavens and Earth wants to dialogue with us, to gently suggest that for a reasonable moment, we are on equal footing. If we just put our mutual thinking caps on, we may come to a satisfying, reasonable conclusion together.
Let’s look at what else He says:
“I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! (Luke 12:4, 5 NASB)
In other words, in the end God will prevail. Carefully consider His dictates. Do not trifle with God.
“For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.” (Psalms 139:13-16 NASB)
In other words, God Himself created and knew me as uniquely ME from the moment I was formed, not yet recognizable to any but Him. From the second I entered my mother’s womb and even before, God marked me as precious.
“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward”. (Psalms 127:3 NASB)
In other words, the fruit of the womb is a blessing. How could we mock God and treat it as otherwise?
“So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you; Yes, even though you multiply prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are covered with blood. “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool. (Isaiah 1:15-18 NASB)
In other words, it is never too late to repent while we yet draw breath. Consider your ways. Consider what is right. Look at the pictures of the fruit of the womb as its tiny heart throbs and its tiny fingers stretch out in supplication. Come now, let us reason together.
