Scripture

Isaiah 56

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Although the nation of Israel were God’s chosen people, what does He promise to those who are not from Israel? What scolding did God give to irresponsible leaders?

Application

Am I thankful that because of Jesus, not just for Israel, but anyone who receives Him is one of God’s people? Do I try to act and live responsibly?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Thank You that because of Jesus, anyone who receives Him is one of Your people, and You give us names that are better than sons and daughters–everlasting names that will never be cut off. Help me to take a lesson from the rebuke You gave Israel’s leaders, such that I may act and live responsibly as Your Spirit leads. I pray, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Catechism

PART 2: CHRIST, REDEMPTION AND GRACE

Question #25: Does Christ’s death mean all our sins can be forgiven?

Children’s Answer: Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God will remember our sins no more.

Adult’s Answer: Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God graciously imputes Christ’s righteousness to us as if it were our own and will remember our sins no more.

Memory Verse

2 Corinthians 5:21 (HCSB)

He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
