Scripture reading for August 11th: Isaiah 47-51
Key Scriptures: Isaiah 49:5-7 “And now the Lord says–He who formed Me in the womb to be His Servant to bring Jacob back to Him and gather Israel to Himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord and My God has been My strength–He says: “It is too small a thing for You to be My Servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make You a light for the Gentiles, that You may bring My salvation to the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah wrote down a conversation between the Lord God and His Servant Son detailing the Servant’s mission and calling. This Servant was formed in the womb to bring Jacob and Israel back to God. And if that was too small a thing, This Servant would also be a light to the Gentiles that He might bring salvation to the ends of the earth! What a grand vision our loving Father and His Servant Son, Jesus Christ have laid out!
Thankful for grand vision: “For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'” When the Gentiles hear this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. The word of the Lord spread through the whole region.” (Acts 13:47-49) (Isaiah 49:7)
