“It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.”
– Isaiah 49:6 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org
As Isaiah is prophesying to Israel, it becomes apparent that there is no way that the remnant of Israel could fulfill God’s expectations. It will take all of us. God’s light has always been for the ends of the earth, and you and I are called to do more than just focus on our families. We are called to tell of God’s good news to all of His creation.
