For some of us, salvation may be seen as a fairly distant concept. In our society today, it can be easy to forget about what God asks of us when we consider the topic of salvation. In the end, however, each one of us must remember that we have been created by God for some type of purpose. It is sometimes easy to generalize creation and to believe that God created humanity in order to convey himself to humanity. This is true—but we must also remember that, in doing so, God created you and I and our neighbors for the very same purpose. In this way, God’s message is much more individual and it can be easier to reach out to God. The reading from Isaiah states that “the Lord called me from birth, from my mother’s womb he gave me my name” (Is. 49:1). Consider how personal this reading truly is! God’s message and ultimately his salvation are intended for individual members of humanity, not simply humanity as a whole.
