COURAGE

OBSERVATION:

ISAIAH SPOKE GOD’S MESSAGE TO THE NATION OF JUDAH, THE SOUTHERN KINGDOM, FOR ABOUT FIFTY YEARS. HE GAVE ADEQUATE WARNING THAT JUDGMENT WAS INEVITABLE IF THEY CONTINUED IN SIN. ISAIAH ASSURED THEM GOD WAS IN CONTROL OVER ALL WORLD EVENTS.

THIS MESSAGE ADDRESSES COURAGE IN A BELIEVER’S LIFE.

INTERPRETATION:

ISAIAH 51:11 (NKJV) SO THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD SHALL RETURN, AND COME TO ZION WITH SINGING, WITH EVERLASTING JOY ON THEIR HEADS. THEY SHALL OBTAIN JOY AND GLADNESS; SORROW AND SIGHING SHALL FLEE AWAY.

POINTS TO PONDER:

WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DEFINES COURAGE AS BRAVERY OR FORTITUDE. EVERY BELIEVER MUST EMBRACE THE REALITY TO MATURE SPIRITUALLY. YOU MUST EMBRACE A FORWARD PERSPECTIVE AS REFERENCED IN ISAIAH 35: 10. LOOK AT THE PROMISES: EVERLASTING JOY AND GLADNESS, SORROW AND SIGHING WILL FLEE. IT IS THE PARADISE DESCRIBED IN ISAIAH 51:3 -6, PARADISE REGAINED!

CHRIST WAS MADE SIN FOR US SO WE COULD ENJOY PARADISE FOREVER. HE ALONE MADE RECONCILIATION FOR ALL SIN.

BELIEVERS MUST EMBRACE THE REALITY OF LIVING A GODLY, EXEMPLARY LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST. IT TAKES COURAGE AND FORTITUDE AND FOCUS TO ACCOMPLISH THIS REALITY.

IT IS INCONCEIVABLE AND DANGEROUS TO REFUSE THE WORK OF CHRIST ON CALVARY.

APPLICATION:

IT TAKES COURAGE AND RESOLVE TO STUDY GOD’S WORD. REMEMBER, IT IS SPIRITUAL AND ETERNAL!
