The Only Person of Our Worship

GENESIS 4:3–5 3In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, 4and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, 5but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. In this passage, we see Cain and his younger brother, Abel, giving their offering to God. They knew that they were giving an offering to…

Victory

ISAIAH 62:11–12 11Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” 12And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. In our study of Isaiah, we have seen that time and again God’s people failed to fulfill their part of the covenant.…

Righteousness

ISAIAH 59:16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede; then his own arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness upheld him. The prophet Isaiah was describing the condition of their nation: there was inequity, injustice, violence, and corruption. He said that because righteousness stands far away (Isaiah 59:14), the people have been separated from God. The injustice in the land has left God’s people hopeless. But God wanted Isaiah to not…

Restoration

ISAIAH 49:8 Thus says the LORD: “In a time of favor I have answered you; in a day of salvation I have helped you; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages . . .” As a result of sin and disobedience, God’s people were taken to Babylon in chains. Defeated, they found themselves in a new land with no place to worship their God. It…

Blessed as an Heir

GALATIANS 4:1,7 1Here is what I have been saying. As long as your own children are young, they are no different from slaves in your house. They are no different, even though they will own all the property . . . 7So you aren’t a slave any longer. You are God’s child. Because you are his child, God gives you the rights of those who are his children. What really makes the Christmas season special is the coming of Jesus…

Bought at a Price

GALATIANS 4:4,5 4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. We were slaves of sin and were held captive under the law (Galatians 3:23). During Paul’s time, slaves were under the rulership of their masters. They could not do anything apart from what their master would say or allow. Sin was our…

Born Of Woman

GALATIANS 4:4,5 4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. Christmas is the season when we celebrate the hope that has come to earth through Jesus. He came to our world as a man through incarnation. Incarnation comes from the Latin word incarnatus, which means “to make flesh.” During Christmas, we remember…

Draw Near to GOD

ISAIAH 48:16 “Draw near to me, hear this: from the beginning I have not spoken in secret, from the time it came to be I have been there.” And now the Lord GOD has sent me, and his Spirit. Getting to know a person involves drawing near and listening. If we were honest with ourselves, we would admit we are not very good listeners. Some would rather keep talking, while others may get easily distracted and would want to do…

Courage

ISAIAH 43:1–2 1But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Israel had failed to trust God. They…

Comfort

ISAIAH 40:1–3 1Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. 2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. 3A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” While God’s people had a long history of stubbornness and unfaithfulness, God has a long history of consistency…
