????Isa 4:2-6; Ps 122:1-2, 3-4ab, 4cd-5, 6-7, 8-9 (R.v.1); Matt 8:5-11


Have you heard of this thing called the remnant theology? The prophets in Israel used that to talk about the ones that would be survive among the people, through whom God shall continue and actualize his promises to Abraham. These remnant ones often come from the righteous ones.

So, at the beginning of this new working week, and just as we kick off the advent period to the fullest, we are encouraged to seek righteousness so that we shall be among the saved remnant.

In line with the above, Isa 4:2-6 now points to an only one who is left and through whom the Lord shall purify the land and save his people. The Christians interpret that image to be that of Christ whose coming we prepare for in this season.

He is coming to level all mountains of backwardness and difficulties in your life. He is going to move you away from death and give life as he gave the servant of the centurion. Are you going to give him a chance?

The centurion gives us two important dispositions that we must put on to show that we desire the saviour to come into our lives and our homes – faith and humility. The centurion had an extraordinary faith in the power of Jesus and an adorable respect for his greatness. So Jesus willingly did for him as he wished.

Do you have faith that Jesus can change your ugly storyline? If you do, try to match it with a respect for him by living righteously in this week and beyond, and you shall join to go up with joy into the house of the Lord (Ps 122:1).

May the Lord increase your faith in him and let his mighty hands remove all that are not of God in you so as to restore in you the joy of salvation. Amen.

Have a beautiful and miraculous new working week. Peace be with you.
