Jesus Our Hope

Isaiah 42:1-9

There are a number of places in the Old Testament where we can learn about Jesus, and Isaiah is one of those places. Isaiah 42:1-9 is all about Jesus. What we in this passage is God's description of Jesus (He refers to Jesus as "My Servant"), and then God's words about what Jesus will do hundreds of years before Jesus comes to earth to live among us. For me, verses 6 and 7 were significant. "I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind."

Take a few minutes and think about the message of Jesus. What part are you playing in spreading the message that Jesus is our Hope? Who can you invite to church this weekend or Christmas Eve? Tami W.

I try to be conscience and aware of the opportunities that I have to witness, I can always do better. I had the perfect opportunity last night to wittiness to two people in the grocery store and didn't take advantage of the time. I hate that feeling of guilt when I know God has given me the opportunity and I don't follow through.

I am trying to be more aware by listening to what someone is saying and if the door opens for me to share the Gospel than I do. There are times I either put the cart ahead of the horse or I just don't share thinking they really don't want to hear. I am going to slow down even more and make listening a priority this next year. In James it says,"be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger."

There are so many among us who are good people, even good friends who either do not know the Lord, have been too busy to seek Him, or have neglected to feed themselves on His words. I know many lonely people (husbands or wives have died, children are far away) and have asked them if they have a church family. The answer is "No, I just never had time to join a church". SAD, sad, sad! I have invited them to our church and recently offered to pick up a woman so she could attend a Bible Study with me. Some do come to church for awhile...and then quit coming. It saddens me-how much more it must sadden God! I'm praying for this woman to come to our Bible study. She's so lonely and there is so much for God to give her if she'll accept His gifts.

In the past couple of weeks, I've had opportunities to share God's love through ministering to grieving families and giving to families in need. These afford opportunities to show what God's people are really all about.
