WORSHIP - which gives perfection to personhoodIsaiah 66: 19 - 24
Isaiah, chapter 66 talks about the message that the Lord wanted His people in Israel to hear as they were repairing the temple in Jerusalem. If we read the first few verses of this chapter we can understand that God is reminding His people of His great majesty and that He cannot be confined in the four walls of a temple. Heaven is His throne and Earth is His footsteps.
The bible verses for us to meditate today are the last verses from the book of Prophet Isaiah. The key verse written is a dream and a desire of every faithful Christian who wants to share the joy of their relationship with God and help everyone experience it. God's people become missionaries and go out to all parts of the world bringing them together to worship Him.
The chapter conveys three significant messages.
- A sign of gathering of God's people which is extended beyond the confines of Israelites
- A sign of reward for those who believe in Him
- A sign of judgment for those who rebel against Him
Father, help us and prepare us for that day when you shall reward us. Help us be faithful servants bringing together mankind to worship you in wholeness. Amen.
