The WHO of your focus....



One of the benefits for the followers of Jesus is that the trajectory of human history has an end goal. Human history is not meaningless. There is no reason to despair of the tornadoes of Moore, OK or the war inside of Syria because there is a grand scheme that is being worked out even if we cannot see it today. For the people, in Isaiah’s day, living through the horrors of a raping, pillaging army from Assyria, it may have seemed senseless, yet, the ancient prophet reminds that this is not the end of the story:

“In that day the Lord Almighty
 will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people. He will be a spirit of justice
 to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength
 to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” (Isaiah 28:5-6)

We may be reduced to a few faithful followers; our numbers are not the issue. The issue is this: WHO is your focus today? – Ron Friesen
