9.24 Divine Service
WELCOME! Today Prophet Isaiah speaks forth the Word of God regarding our relationship with Him. God knows that we are weak and heavy laden. He knows that we cannot reach Him and His mercy by our own strength and righteousness. Therefore He tenderly invites us to take stock of ourselves and call upon Him. He calls upon us to obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit, given to us in our Holy Baptism, and repent once again of our pride and sinfulness. "Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near..." God sent Jesus Christ to be our righteousness. In Him we have forgiveness for all our sins. In Christ we are freed from the power of Satan and death. Best of all, God is not like us. "...as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Depend on God. You are His beloved child. Listen to Him and find contentment in any situation.
