Healing Down Under

Isaiah 61:1,2 The Spirit of the Lord God is on me. The Lord has chosen me to tell good news to the poor and to comfort those who are sad. He sent me to tell the captives and prisoners that they have been set free. He sent me to announce that the time has come for the Lord to show his kindness, when our God will also punish evil people.

When you boil it all down, the reason that God sent us His Son, is to save us from the unthinkable consequences of our sin. And in Christ, our forgiveness is so utterly complete, that it almost defies comprehension.

There are so many different things that seem so important to us; things that clutter our world. And “forgiveness” ain’t one of them. You don’t hear people talk much about forgiveness anymore these days, as something that’s an important element to our emotional well-being, do you?

And yet for God, our need for forgiveness lies at the very centre of who He is. He sees us stumbling off in the wrong direction, piercing ourselves with many pains and His heart aches for us.

Just stop and think about that. When you and I blunder off and do something stupid that ends up hurting us, deep down the heart of God aches for us, for you and for me.

Now by rights, He should just let us go. I mean, it’s our own stupid fault most of the time, as we suffer the consequences of our, well, let’s call it what it is … our sin. That’s what He should do.

But instead, He sends us His Son Jesus to …

Isaiah 61:1,2 … tell good news to the poor and to comfort those who are sad. He sent me to tell the captives and prisoners that they have been set free. He sent me to announce that the time has come for the Lord to show his kindness, when our God will also punish evil people. He has sent me to comfort those who are sad.

Instead, He sends us Jesus so that you and I could experience God’s comfort and His forgiveness for all eternity. Astounding!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
