We who have been purchased by Christ might sometimes feel like we should just go along with the unrighteousness around us. Yet though the cost of following the Lord is great, and may even be greater in the days ahead, we should never lose hope and think our suffering is in vain. For as Isaiah also says in today’s passage, “a Redeemer will come to Zion” (Isa. 59:20). God will intervene to vindicate us, revealing to the whole world on the last day that we made the right choice in obeying Him.
