Covenant

Isaiah 42:6-7
I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

God spoke these words through the prophet Isaiah about the coming Messiah…700 years before Jesus. Jesus read these words and came into the knowledge that they speak of Him and His mission. God is very patient and creative…yearning to use all of us in a wonderful love story. It’s God’s love story. There were many characters in this story before Jesus…and many after. Each of us is an integral part of God’s great love story. What part do you play? If you are a follower of Jesus…then you are also meant to take part in His mission stated above. How are you God’s Light to the world, opening the eyes of the blind and setting prisoners free?
