March 12- May 6th we are reading Isaiah in our Women In The Word Bible group. Isaiah is a book with a lot to absorb, filled with prophecies and passages describing a future anointed King. I wonder what it was like to read Isaiah before the prophecies were fulfilled?
As we read through Isaiah, I pray that we can understand better the plan God revealed in prophecies and how they are fulfilled through Christ.
Isaiah 1&2 we see God listing off the sins of Israel, His disobedient children. But we also notice God’s character never changes, He loves His children and has a plan for salvation. His wrath and anger do not over power His love for us.
Come, let us settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool”
Here is a cross reference my Bible gave me for today’s reading. (She Reads Truth HCSB)
44 Then He told them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. 46 He also said to them, “This is what is written: The Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead the third day, 47 and repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things.
We are so thankful for your plan of salvation and redemption through Christ. We are so very undeserving, but somehow Your love conquers all sin. What a beautiful image that we are washed clean, white as snow. I pray that as much as we can recognize our sin, we recognize your amazing grace even more.
In Jesus’ Name,
