Day 154 of 2015

You spent the last two weeks listening as God made his case against Israel and Judah, point by point, like a cold prosecuting attorney.  By the time you reach this halfway point of Isaiah, you might be wanting to wave a white flag, thinking, Enough!  I’m convinced of their guilt and need for punishment!

Why does God expect more from people than they can deliver?  Why doesn’t God grade on a curve?

Intermixed with these tales of woes, God offers the hope of forgiveness and a new start.  In Luke, Jesus brought this hope within reach for everyone who will call on His name....

God uses Isaiah as a mouthpiece not only to Israel and Judah but also to the nations around them...Over the next two weeks you will see God’s plan expand for all the world.  As you read Isaiah’s Messages of Comfort, you will understand why Jesus came for everyone.

Do you share God’s love and passion for people?  Are you willing to go to the same lengths God does to offer people the hope that can be theirs?
