Isaiah 49: 1-26, 50: 1-11, 51: 1-23, 52: 1-15
- Israel, a light to the nations.
- Restoration of Jerusalem
- Obedience of the Lord's servant.
- The faithful encouraged.
- The end of Jerusalem's suffering
- God will rescue Jerusalem.
- The suffering servant.
52: 7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns. This has been made into a beautiful song and I love singing it too.
In this reading today one can see God's compassion and love for His people. God wants us to walk with Him and He so wants to bless us. Our God does reign.
