The Lord’s Disappointing Vineyard!

There is an old worship song that goes, “After all He’s done for me, after all He’s done for me – How could I do less than give Him my best, and live for Him completely; after all He’s done for me?”

Isaiah 5 speaks of a “love song concerning God’s vineyard” (Jerusalem and Judah – God’s people). The Lord had redeemed His people from bondage, rescued them and provided for them on multiple occasions. He sustained them through the wilderness, defended them and prospered them!

Their response? … Complaint, disobedience, rebellion and idolatry! So He asks, “What more was there to do for my vineyard that I have not done for it? I looked for it to yield grapes – why did it yield wild grapes? I will remove its hedge (its protection)! I will break down its wall! I looked for justice, but behold bloodshed; for righteousness, but behold, an outcry!”

What ungratefulness! As a redeemed child of God I never want to be guilty of that! “AFTER ALL HE’S DONE FOR ME…”
