Singing with joy (Isaiah 54:1) - Our song comes from the Lord. Our joy
comes from the Lord. From ourselves, there is sin. From the Lord, there
is salvation. “Through the love of God our Saviour, all will be well ...
All is well ... All must be well.” So much blessing is ours, because
Jesus is crucified, risen and exalted.
On the Cross, Jesus was
forsaken by God so that we might be forgiven by God. At the Cross, He
was brought low so that we might be lifted up. From the Cross, Jesus
calls out to us.
In love, He speaks to us. His love is the greatest love of all. His love is “everlasting love” (Isaiah 54:8).
This is where our song of joy comes from. It comes from His everlasting love.
In the Old Testament, we see the rainbow (Isaiah 54:9). It’s a reminder of God’s great love for us.
the New Testament, we have bread and wine - God’s way of reminding us
that He loves us so much that He gave his Son, Jesus, to die on the
cross for us.
Through Jesus, we have “peace with God” (Isaiah 54:10),
we are “taught by the Lord” (Isaiah 54:13), we will be given His
victory over Satan - “No weapon formed against you will succeed” (Isaiah
54:17), we will be led on to His everlasting Kingdom - “poor Jerusalem”
(Isaiah 54:11) will become “new Jerusalem” (Revelation 21:2).
