• Depending on the Lord Devotional

    Isaiah 66:1–2

    Christian growth comes as we learn more and more what it means to depend absolutely on God. Our Lord, since He is a jealous God, will not put up with His people not depending fully on Him. Thus, He will remove the idols from our lives, proving that it is futile to rely absolutely on anyone else but Him. This can be a trying process for us, as it often involves suffering. But in our suffering, we learn what it means to rely on the Lord truly and fully. View Resource

  • God’s Glory in Judgment Devotional

    Isaiah 66:15–24

    God’s glory will be shown on the last day when He executes final judgment. On that day, the whole world will see His righteousness as everything is set right and the wicked get the justice they deserve. Let us give glory to God for His justice and pray that the day on which that justice is fully revealed comes quickly. View Resource

  • The Worship of All Flesh Devotional

    Isaiah 66:15–24

    Isaiah also conveys the glorious blessing of the new heavens and earth in today’s passage when he says “some of them also I will take for priests” (Isa. 66:21). He is referring to the Gentiles, and this would have been incredible for the original audience to hear. Most Jews could not be priests, but the fact that God would make some Gentiles priests points to the equality of Jew and Gentile under the new covenant. In Christ, we are all priests to the Most High God. View Resource
