Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Lent 3 (Combined Service) – The Jewish people had been in exile for 50 years, powerless, destitute and with no resources, when the prophet Isaiah brought them a message from God that the ancient covenant made hundreds of years earlier with King David was about to be reactivated, and the nation of Israel was to become a light to the world – a ridiculous idea, given the current circumstances. But God tells us that his thoughts are not our thoughts, and his ways are not our ways. We have the hope that God is always with us, making the world a better place to live in. Hope is not the same as confidence; confidence implies a belief in one's own abilities to get the job done. Let us allow ourselves to be transformed by the spirit of God to become a blessing to our neighbours. Leave the consequences to God, whose thoughts and aims are way beyond ours.
Isaiah 55: 1-9
