Call To Righteousness By The Lord
" This is what God the Lord says-
He who created the heavens and
stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and all
that comes out of it,
who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it:
'I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon
those who sit in darkness.
'I am the Lord; that is my name!
I will not give glory to another
or my praise to idols.
See, the former things have taken place,
and new things I declare;
before they spring into being
I announce them to you."
Isaiah 42: 5-9
We are all called to righteousness by the Lord in the furtherance of His kingdom here on earth. We must be very careful in everything that we say and do for the world watches us to see how we glorify or put to shame the name of the Lord. We become bearers of His name, saved and transformed to bear fruit that will glorify the name of the Lord. We must serve as the light of the world and salt of the earth, attracting people to our way of life so that we can become credible and effective testimonies for the Lord. Let us walk in faith and trust the Spirit of God to transform us from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. Until then, we are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of our final reunion with Christ.
