Sovereign Protector

READ: Isaiah 54: 16-17

Reminding us of Paul's words in 2 Corinthians 10, (Paul may very well have had this passage in mind), Isaiah ends with an image of God as a Sovereign Pro rector, but note that there is an active part for the redeemed. "You will refute ... This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD ... " God's people are active participants in His work in the world. As we worship together today, let's commit to taking part in making known His covenant of peace, in part by refuting the lies of the enemy, and championing a God who redeems and protects.

A New City

READ: Isaiah 54:11-15

Using the beloved, and ever beaten, city of Jerusalem as a picture of this new covenant of peace, Isaiah writes descriptively of this restora­tion, something that John the apostle clearly grabs a hold of, (led by the Holy Spirit), and further develops in Revelation 21:18-20. How does God's promise of restoration and peace bring us peace when our current circumstances may seem otherwise?

Maker-Husband-Redeemer

READ: Isaiah 54:5-9

Isaiah drives home the idea of redemption here, and more impor­tantly, casts God as the husband-redeemer more than once. God is not a cruel judge, even in His punishments, but a lover wounded and betrayed, who will yet extend grace and compassion to His bride, again. Perhaps take some time today to write a prayer expressing your worship of the Lord who is ever-gracious to you?

A New Situation

READ: Isaiah 54:2-4

God exhorts His people here to "dream big", take new ground, throw off the clothes of mourning and prepare for a new season. This is not the prosperity gospel, but our true situation spiritually on the other side of Calvary. We'll explore this in this week's sermon, but after Isa­iah 53, everything in Isaiah changes. So how has everything changed in your life after you came to believe in the Servant?
