Isaiah 49:1-7, this week’s Bible reading, sounds like an inspirational speech given to get a group of people ready for a task, a big event, or a restoration.
  • Listen everyone!
  • I’ve known this since before I was born!
  • I’m ready to tell you!
  • I wasn’t sure I was ready, but I am!
  • It’s time for us to gather to God!
  • Not only us – it’s time for us to help everyone gather to God!
  • Let’s follow what God wants us to do!
There you have it.  An inspirational speech – and an uplifting one at that. It’s in the words and in the context of the words.

Do you know what this week’s Bible reading isn’t?

It has nothing to do with abortion. Nothing at all.
