The Hope of Creation
Isaiah 58:1-12 | God has chosen a world in which there is abundance for all and there is love for all and in which all worship God and work together toward his way of life for the world. This is a world of justice, of mercy, of peace, and of abundance. But we have chosen self-indulgence and self-satisfaction free from justice and vulnerability. We have chosen isolation and separation from God and from one another. We have chosen a sort of deluded independence that allows us to ignore the mark of death on our lives all while persisting in the kinds of lives that make that mark deeper. God desires to lead us back to the life he dreams for us.
