We were designed to
have a lasting impact on
eternity. Everyone will die, but
few people will ever truly live.
To live like a Centurion,
to live with honor before God
and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live
with dedication to a cause, to
live with compassion for others,
is to live in a way that will
echo in eternity.
We meet for
coffee and conversation on
Saturdays at Einstein Bagels at
7:00am. See you there.
We're studying David A Man After
on Facebook and twitter.

As a mother
comforts her child, so will I comfort
you. Isaiah 66:13
friend entrusted me with the privilege
of holding her precious, four-day-old
daughter. Not long after I took the
baby into my arms, she started to
fuss. I hugged her closer, my cheek
pressed against her head, and began to
sway and hum in a gentle rhythm to
soothe her. Despite these earnest
attempts, and my decade and a half of
parenting experience, I couldn’t
pacify her. She became increasingly
upset until I placed her back into the
crook of her mother’s eager arm. Peace
washed over her almost
instantaneously; her cries subsided
and her newborn frame relaxed into the
safety she already trusted. My friend
knew precisely how to hold and pat her
daughter to alleviate her distress.
God extends comfort to His
children like a mother: tender,
trustworthy, and diligent in her
efforts to calm her child. When we are
weary or upset, He carries us
affectionately in His arms. As our
Father and Creator, He knows us
intimately. He “will keep in perfect
peace all who trust in [him], all
whose thoughts are fixed on [him]”
(Isa. 26:3 nlt).

God’s comfort soothes us
In reflecting on the exile of Israel
under divine discipline, the prophet
Isaiah offers hope and comfort. He
sees very clearly that “the Holy One
of Israel” and the Creator of all
things in heaven and earth are
connected. Israel had a wayward heart
that is characteristic of the human
race. Yet the ultimate goal of
Israel’s discipline was to secure
their repentance and therefore a
future blessing in the eternal
covenant established with His people.
Certainly God’s plan for Israel’s
redemption included an unexpected
impulse of divine grace extended to
all the peoples of the world—from
every tribe, tongue, and nation:
“After this I looked, and there before
me was a great multitude that no one
could count, from every nation, tribe,
people and language, standing before
the throne and before the Lamb” (Rev.

"And if it seems evil
to you to serve the Lord, choose
for yourselves this day whom you
will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the
Amorites, in whose land you
dwell. But as for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord."
