The Lord Be With You Today!
“The Redeemer will come to Zion,
to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the LORD.
(What a promise to us today!
Not only has the Lord given Himself to us as Man to be our substitute sacrifice,
but He still gives Himself to us through His Holy Spirit to be present with us now.
Coming out of Zion, He now comes to Zion, to His people.
Our God, our hope, our deliverer, our victory, our strength, our provision,
comes to us as Redeemer, as LORD, as the Great I AM,
as the eternal, incomprehensible, omnipotent, omniscient God.
Completely “Other,” He makes Himself available to us,
to save us, to give us life in Him, to provide for us.
He chooses us before we ever even seek Him.
He pursues us while we are still in sin.
He redeems us out of His love though there is nothing lovely about us.
The only response we can make to such a Presence,
to such an arrival, indeed, our one required response,
is to turn to Him in repentance to receive Him
as the Lord and Savior that He is.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
