Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 44:24 which says, “This is what the Lord says- your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself. (It keeps going to the next verse, but I stopped here)
What, this is confusing, my mom gave birth to me, and so far my mom isn’t my redeemer, so what is Isaiah talking about? Well, actually it’s not your mom who ultimately gave birth to you, God did, he made the first two people on the face of the earth, and without them none of us would be alive. Okay, but why is he calling God our redeemer? Because Jesus died for us, back then Jesus hadn’t died, He wasn’t even born yet, but God spoke through Isaiah and told him to write that, even though maybe even Isaiah was confused, but God was looking ahead, He knew that Jesus was going to die for us, and that’s why He not only told Isaiah to write something like this, but He also told other people like David to write ahead.
Okay, so what does God mean He made the Heavens and the earth by Himself, doesn’t it say that there’s a trinity, Jesus God and the Holy Spirit, right? Yes there is a trinity, but they are three in one, anyway let’s get to the point, when it talks about God being our redeemer its pointing to Jesus, why? Because He died for us on the cross, he took on all of our sins, and gave us His righteousness, He, even though He was (and is) perfect, died for us, thank you so much Jesus, ”
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. (ESV 2 Corinthians 8:9)
Christ became poor for us, although that doesn’t mean that we can keep on sinning, we shouldn’t sin so that grace may abound, but the Holy spirit is in us, and He is making us more and more like Jesus, of course we still sin, but, if we are Christians, then Christ is in us, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Christ is your redeemer, and that He died for your sins on the cross?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
