This is the message of Good News for the people of Israel—that there is peace with God through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.
Lover: Dear One, your Lover is not weak like you. No, I am Lord of all, and I have a special place in relation to God the Father. Because of My death on the cross to pay for your sins, I can bring you into God’s presence in peace. You have no need to fear. I have overcome and have chosen you. The cost I paid to be in this powerful position was great. It is not to be taken lightly. Forgiveness costs.
9I pulled you in from all over the world, called you in from every dark corner of the earth, telling you, ‘You’re my servant, serving on my side. I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’ 10Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you. 13 Because I, your God, have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic. I’m right here to help you.’
(Isaiah 41:9-10, 13, The Message)
