September 26

“And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me.” Isaiah 45:21b (NIV)

There is something wonderful about the way God put two expressions together in these words. He said that He is a righteous God and He is a Savior. There is a beautiful connection between the two. When we think of our Lord as a righteous God we realize that He also wants His people to be righteous. He wants us to do what is right. And a righteous God would be one who would punish those that fail to do right. But then God describes Himself as being a Savior. Instead of wanting to punish those who fail, He wants to save them. Thank God that He is righteous AND a Savior.
