Jesus proclaimed that he came to fulfill the first three verses of Isaiah 61. The result of Him bringing the “good news” (the Gospel) in verse 3 is that we “may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified!”
What a beautiful image! This isn’t a picture of a lone sapling or brittle trees growing sporadically across a hill side. No! It is God changing the landscape! Oaks of righteousness all growing to maturity. Forests full of life, rooted deeply in His love- all to display the beauty of His glory!
