“The LORD their God will save them on that day as the flock of his people. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown. How attractive and beautiful they will be! Grain will make the young men thrive, and new wine the young women.” (Zech. 9:16-17).
This prophecy was fulfilled for us through Jesus Christ, our Messiah King. It was said of Mary: “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:21).
Notice the blessings of the saving grace of Jesus Christ:
1) You become a member of His ‘flock’, referring to Jesus as the Good Shepherd that will care and provide for His sheep.
2) You will sparkle in His Kingdom by the radiance of His glory. Jesus the “Light of the World” has made you the light of this world.
3) You will be attractive and beautiful as His grace and glory makes you hope to the hopeless; help to the helpless, and salvation to those in need of His grace.
4) You will grow and thrive – as you study His Word and live by His Word you will grow in inner strength and wisdom.
5) You will be refreshed “as with new wine” for the joy of the Lord shall be your strength.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and power of His love be with you always.
I live, walk and prosper by the grace and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
