The Gospel Reminder for Isaiah 1:5 – Why do you want to be destroyed?
The Gospel reminds me that while I was hell-bent on my own destruction, lost in sin, and wise in my own eyes, God loved me.
As someone who is now a believer in Jesus, the Gospel reminds me that there was a time when that was not the case.
When I was on my way to being “struck down” …
When I was continuing “to rebel”…
When my “whole head [was] sick” and my “whole heart faint”, Christ Jesus died to reconcile me to my Heavenly Father.
Not of my own will or the will of any other man, but because God had mercy on me. Praise God!
