Isaiah 7:14 A Saviour

Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”

Isaiah 11:1–5

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—and he will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist.”

We are sinners who don’t deserve God’s grace and forgiveness and still God never gives us on us, committing himself to saving us from our sin through a saviour who turns out to be his own son Jesus, who takes our punishment on himself so that we can be put right with God again! God never abandons his creation, loving it as much as when he first crated everything, looking ahead to restoring creation to all it glory again out of his great love for us. What a God we follow!

 

CT Article 4. Our world, fallen into sin, has lost its first goodness, but God has not abandoned the work of his hands: our Maker preserves this world, sending seasons, sun, and rain, upholding all creatures, renewing the earth, promising a Savior, guiding all things to their purpose.
