I will give you as a light to the Nations

God’s plan for your life is that you save the world.

I guess our  lives often feel pretty mundane, or purposeless or unimportant. We probably all feel some days (or maybe everyday), “in the big scheme of things I don’t really matter…”

Isaiah 42 says you are wrong. Listen: “I will take you by the hand and keep you, I will give you as a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon.”

That’s what God says to his people. And if you are a Christian - that includes YOU! This is God’s plan for your life: you are his instrument who he is giving to the world to save it, to set it free, to lift it out of darkness. I wonder if you think of your life in those terms? It’s amazing - there is nothing mundane, purposeless or unimportant about being God’s world-saving instrument. Let that sink in!

We will be finding out how this works in Isaiah 42 this Sunday - so please read it through before you  come. God says the most amazing things about us in this chapter. Enjoy!
