Isaiah 1:27 -- On Being Zion

"Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness."
Isaiah 1:27

This is a good thing to think about.  Often we think about redemption as something that is only active on God's side.  We are broken and God comes and picks us up and puts us back together, right?  Except, if he does it all, where do we end up?  We can't end up as spiritual invalids.  Redemption requires our participation in order for us to become something more than what we are.  And that means judgment and that means righteousness.  Those are things that we have to work at and work for.  If we are going to become part of Zion, we need to be part of a perfect society by learning who we are and what we have to offer, not just expecting God to take care of everything for us. :)
Today, let's improve our judgment and our righteousness, and do our best to be ready for God to judge us by our righteousness as well.  Let's start giving back, and work on being Zion people, and building that perfect society.
