The hallmark of Isaiah is this: Salvation is of God! Jesus Christ is the Messiah! However, the years in Israel’s history covered in Isaiah were a time of great struggle politically and spiritually. Isaiah 1:2–31 has been called “the Lord’s lawsuit against the nation.” Besides pointing out the shortcomings of the people, Isaiah tells us that God always has a remnant of believers through whom He works. Are you part of God’s remnant today?
“‘Come now, let’s settle this,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.’” (Isaiah 1:18, NLT)
How does it encourage you that we serve a covenant-keeping God who can be trusted?
