Called to Serve

Isaiah 42:6-7
I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

God spoke these words through the prophet Isaiah about the coming Messiah…700 years before Jesus. Jesus would read these words and realize that they speak of Him and His mission. God is very patient and creative…yearning to have us all take part in a wonderful love story. There were many characters in this story leading up to Jesus…and many after. We are meant to be a part of God’s great love story…each of us. It’s a unique part that only you can play. If you are a follower of Jesus…then you are also meant to take part in His mission stated above. If you do this…you will reflect God’s light to the world…and discover your true self.
