We Are the Light to the World

The LORD said to me, “I have a greater task for you, my servant. Not only will you restore to greatness the people of Israel who have survived, but I will also make you a light to the nations— so that all the world may be saved.” (Isaiah 49:6 GNB)

Israel was held captive. Their life was upside down and they weren’t even sure any more if they were God’s people. God assures them that they are and that it will all work out…but then he says this amazing thing. Basically he says “I will fix your problem but that isn’t the point. The point is that I want the world to be saved, not just you. Just because your problem is fixed, that is not the end of the story. There’s much more to be done.”  Are we looking to God only to fix our current problem or are we working with him for greater things beyond that?  Things that make you go “Hmmmmmmm.”
