Wild Grapes.

Key Verse

“… wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?” Isaiah 5:4b

Text — Isaiah 5:4-7


The children of Israel are the only people on earth that are originally referred to as God’s people. Their capital city, Jerusalem, is the only city that is called the City of God. Israel is very precious to God, it is not because of her righteousness or obedience, it all started with the call of Abraham. Obedience of one man brought God’s favour upon a people. It is also because God was preparing a people through whom He would bring the Saviour to the world.

However, God was concerned about the attitude of the children of Israel towards Him. He has showed them so much love and patiently waited for them to do what is right before Him. But, they bore wild grapes (rebellious and wicked acts) instead of fruits of righteousness. God planted them like a vineyard; but they did not bear fruits that were pleasant to God. Most times, God was disappointed by their disobedience. He had to remove His covering of protection from them and brought severe punishment on them.

Obedience to God and doing what is right before Him all the time, this will ensure God’s unceasing blessings on you. Is God happy with you? Does He see actions of truth and righteousness in your life? If yes, be rest assured He will keep and bless you. If no, repent and He will forgive you.
