1 Samuel 2:8-9; Psalm 3:8; 35:10; 91:1-6; Isaiah 43:1-5; 45:21-22; Ephesians 1:7
For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost.
King Hezekiah was a king who sought to obey and please God. He ruled the Israelites when the Israelites were under the siege of the Assyrians. The Assyrian king did not follow the true God. Hezekiah knew he could not save the Israelites by himself. Only God could rescue them from the Assyrians. Only God can rescue us from our sin. He is our Rescuer.
Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
