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.
