“For your husband is your Maker, whose name is the Lord of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, who is called the God of all the earth” (Isaiah 54:5).

When trapped by the struggles and alienation of exile, one’s spiritual heritage can be lost in the daily battle to survive. This “lostness” is, seemingly, made all the more certain by the illusion of comfort, security, and pleasure offered by the pagan gods of political power, military might, bountiful economic systems, and limitless entertainment. Being no different than Isaiah’s original audience, we, too, must forsake the gods of fleshly desire and return to the God of our heritage and redemption.
