Isaiah 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
What a verse! God is talking to Israel. He speaks of a day when they will say Praise the Lord! They will call on His name and encourage others to do the same. They will talk of all the things that the Lord has done and is doing. They will talk about the fact that His name is exalted.
We live in the age of grace. The church age is our time to live. We know much more about this than those that lived in the days of Isaiah. We know the name, Jesus Christ. We know what He has done. He as God has come in human flesh to the earth. He has lived without sin and yet died as a sinner. He was buried and rose again. He has paid for sin and is victorious.
It ought to be our heart’s desire to see His name exalted around the world. We know the truth. We have received the gift of salvation. We have seen Him at work. I am in China right now and watching all that God is doing. What a wonderful thing to see His Name exalted.
Now the question is, what are you doing to help get the gospel to the nations. Will you give, go, pray, get trained, to do something for the cause of His name? Will you praise Him? Will you declare His name among the people?
I hurt to see His Name exalted. I live to see us be a church that cares about our community and the world. I challenge you today to carry the gospel to others!
