“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles” Isaiah 42:6 (NIV)
It is because of the righteousness of God that Jesus came to earth to bring redemption to humanity. God could have washed His hands of earth and destroyed it or allowed Satan to have a contained rule here, but instead God sent Jesus to be the second Adam, to fulfill the requirements of the law, to stand as His covenant to the nations that whosoever believes will be saved into a New Heaven and New Earth.
The Lord calls us to be a light to our corners of the world as we answer His call to His righteousness. Thankfully, the Lord doesn’t just leave us to figure it out on our own, but He takes hold of our hand and keeps close to Him.
Let’s pray today that the glory of God will shine in our world and many will believe in Jesus.
