Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Faithfulness is important to God, because He is faithful. And He expects those whom He chooses to call His own to respond to Him in faithfulness. But as we have already seen, the peoples of Israel and Judah found it virtually impossible to treat God with the honor and reverence He deserves. They were constantly pursuing false gods and putting their hopes in pagan nations. Regardless of the many occasions when God stood by His people, they continued to turn their backs on Him, treating Him with disdain and showing Him disrespect. And in Isaiah 17:9-14, God will accuse the people of Judah of forgetting Him, the God of their salvation. They will prove to have short-term memories, failing to remember all that He had done for them. And they will show a disregard for His involvement in their lives, thinking instead that they are somehow responsible for all the good things they enjoy. Their forgetfulness will bring upon them God’s justice. And while God would end up punishing their unfaithfulness, He will remain faithful to them.
