The Impetrative Offer of the Gospel in Isaiah 55

If you’re not sure what “impetrative” means you should listen to this brief message. If you’ve ever wondered what the well-meant offer of the gospel is or what it means or if you’ve ever suspected that it might be just a little bit of Arminianism sneaking into Reformed theology, piety, and practice, you should listen to this devotion from Dr Hywel Jones from Isaiah 55. If you’re a preacher and you’re discouraged, you should listen to this message. If there something wrong with the sermon you heard yesterday but you’re not quite sure what it was, listen to this message.

“When you think of imperative don’t just think of command. Think of invitation too.”

“How dare we think they won’t come.”

“He will receive you and he’ll given you something to wear as well.”

“And one other thing, be sure to come yourself”

There are so many reasons to listen to this devotion.
