Isaiah 41, 42
Focus Verse: “I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations.” – Isaiah 42:6
God originally intended for His chosen people, the Jews, to proclaim Him to the world. They were to be a light for the Gentiles – for us.
But after Christ came, that changed. There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female. There is only those who believe in Jesus the Christ and those who don’t. All those who do believe are a part of God’s family and by Him we have been called in righteousness, to live clean and innocent lives as His children in the midst of a warped and crooked world.
We are a part of the covenant. Grafted into the Heavenly family tree.
As such, it is now our responsibility to be a light in the darkness and to proclaim Christ to the nations.
