Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 62:11 which says, “The Lord has made a proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See, your savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.'”
If you look in the verses before it says that “they wouldn’t be known as the desolate people”, you might be wondering when it says about them being a desolate people, the reason they were was because they sinned against God (like we all do) and they wanted to be like the nations around them and they disobeyed God. We all sin and they had to offer sacrifcies but God didn’t really need sacrifices, they pointed forward to Jesus. What I’m saying is that if you disobey God (which we have to do because we can’t obey God perfectly) then your going to be desolate because of your sins. But that is why Jesus died for us.
Jesus died for us so that we wouldn’t have to be desolate because of our sins. Jesus was (and is) the savior the verse talked about near the end and He saved us from our sins, we just have to believe in Him and trust in Him. But that doesn’t give us a license to sin, ”
Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We are dead to sin and alive in Christ.
Have you accepted Jesus as your savior?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
