What a soul stirring set of chapters we read today! First we read more of Moses final message to God’s people, God’s command to him is to emphasize “the covenant that he had made with them at Horeb” [Deut. 29 v.1] and remind them of all that happened to their parents on their wilderness journey, and the recent blessings they had experienced. “Therefore,” says Moses, “keep the words of this covenant and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.”[v.9] Surely the same needs to be said today – to all who are living with the hope – and expectation – of reaching a greater promised land – a glorified earth with Christ in control..
Then we started reading the prophet Isaiah, how challenging is the message God gives us through him. The way of life of his people is outwardly one of service, but it is only outward! “What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the LORD … Bring no more vain offerings … cease to do evil, learn to do good … ” [v.11,13,16,17]
Let us make sure our offerings of “words” are not just words – but come from our hearts and are shown in our actions. Then we read on and felt uplifted by a wondrous appeal and promise made to those who are willing! “Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow … If you are willing and obedient…” [v.18,19]
Then we read of the wondrous promises to those who are willing,! “Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed by justice, and those in her who repent, by righteousness.” [v.26,27] May we strive ever harder to be among those who “are willing and obedient.”
Then in Acts ch. 27 we read Luke’s graphic eye-witness account of his disastrous voyage with Paul which ended in shipwreck. Is not our world on a similar voyage! The prophets reveal our world is going to get wrecked. How much we need a Paul to give us words of encouragement, for the time is surely coming, as the LORD prophesied through Jeremiah, a time when “at his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation.” [10 v.10]
The sins of the world “are like scarlet” and how few have a genuine relationship with him so that “they shall be as white as snow” in his sight! For some, “on that day” they will be – that will be because they have embraced a genuine relationship with God through His son now. Let us make sure we have done this– and that it is an ongoing relationship – day after day after day.
