“I chose you to bring justice, and I am here at your side. I selected and sent you and my promise of hope to the nations.” (Isaiah 42: 6, Contemporary English Version)
This may seem like a high calling for someone else. But it is really God’s beckoning to all those who hear Him, who are listening, and who believe what they hear.
For the Christ, the timeless idea, preceded Jesus’ birth and continues to live with us and in us today. The Christ is the Truth of God made known to humanity, and our consciousness of the power of this goodness and Love, means we are indeed chosen. We are selected by our willingness to bring justice, to act as messengers and examples of kindness, peace, reason, as well as gratitude and joy.
And God, Almighty goodness, is at our side. It isn’t some personal task to promote justice in the world, frantically waving a banner and fighting all the way. We have God with us. That fullness of Love and Life, of strength and protection, is our defense and our efficacy. We have God’s own promise of hope, and we can rejoice that this promise includes us, uplifts us, embraces us, and empowers us to be the called, the chosen, the very ones whom God trusts to express and to accept His saving grace.
