The LORD’s Invitation
As we close our series of sermons through this section of Isaiah, we see here what the LORD would have us do with all that we’ve seen of his glorious promises: Come to him.
Abundant Salvation, Abundant Joy
Though our condition in this world is often shameful and afflicted, we can break forth into exuberant song even now because God’s salvation is so exuberant.

God’s Glorious Suffering Servant
In this passage we will see that Jesus, the Suffering Servant, endured being despised for our salvation. He is now exalted and His reward is His people whom He has made righteous.
See the Salvation of our God
In this section of Isaiah, the prophet calls us to wake up and see the salvation of our God!
The LORD calls His remnant people to turn to Him for comfort
Walking in the Dark
There is much darkness in our world, and there is no visible road from here to our heavenly home. How can we walk in the dark? We must walk by what our ears hear, not by what our eyes see.
Salvation Spreading Out
In this passage, Israel felt forgotten and forsaken by God, and we can feel that way at times too. But God comforts them with the good news that his salvation is going to spread out as a servant.

Listening to God
We hear a lot of voices today, and it’s possible to “hear” without really listening and processing what we hear. With some voices that’s appropriate, but in this text God calls us to truly listen to his promise of salvation.
Listen and Remember
Amid the temptation to worship idols, God calls us to listen and remember that he is the only true God.

The Only God and Savior
There is only one true God who made and rules over all things. We can resist him and suffer his curse, but we cannot change him or control him. Instead, we can turn to him and be saved.
What to Remember in Exile
While Israel was in exile, they needed to remember two big things that we also need to remember while we are away from the Lord: Our sin, and God’s grace.
Hope Under Fire
Undeserved suffering is one of the great tragedies of life in a fallen world. But what about the times when you’re suffering as a consequence of your own sin? Even in those times, God tells his people to not be afraid, because he redeems them from his judgment.
