HE WANTS US TO BE RIGHTEOUS

(Isaiah 1:10-20)

God is very much interested in our righteousness than in the things we offer Him. In the message God sent through the prophet Isaiah to the rebellious nation of Jerusalem and Judah above, He emphasized how what He is offered by the people meant nothing to Him.

He went on to tell the people that no matter how hard they prayed unto him in their sins (whilst their hands are covered with blood), it would amount to nothing because He would hide His eyes from them. He then called out to the people to come and settle their matter. He assures purity when one comes unto Him to settle their sins. (Isaiah 1:18)

And it only takes your willingness and obedience to have your matter settled with the Lord, and earn the privilege of enjoying the fruits of the land. In verse 21-22 of the chapter one of the book of Isaiah, God tells the people how they will suffer if they refuse to come to Him. The message in boldness is God is interested in your righteousness than in your gifts.

Have a fruitful week, Amen!
