Over the next few weeks in our Rooted in Christ Study, we’ll be looking at some of the favorite passages from our staff at St. Matthew’s UMC. These are some of the parts of the Bible to mean to most to our staff.
Today’s reading is Isaiah 43: 1-5a
Today’s reading is one of the absolute truths of scripture. No matter what we go through, God will not leave us. He has called us. We are His. When we pass through the fire, we will not be consumed. When we pass through the water, we will not draw. He has called us by name. We are His.
He has formed us. He has made us. He has given His very son as a ransom for us today. Here this, friend. You are loved today. No matter what you are going through, what you’ve been through, what is happening, or what will happen.
You are not alone. You are not forgotten. God is with you.
Do not fear. He is with you. You are His. Do not fear. No matter what, do no fear.
