Isaiah on Lent
In a few weeks we begin another Lenten journey. This year we will take that journey with the Old Testament Prophet, Isaiah. Even though Isaiah lived around 700 years before Jesus, God gave him a special message that revealed quite a bit about the life and work of Jesus. God left “clues” for his people so that for those who knew the Bible they would recognize the Savior.
God’s Word leaves clues also for us. We all have times in life when we just need to quiet our minds from the busy and sometimes distressing thoughts of life and just spend a few moments with our Savior. Be refreshed in this competitive world knowing that we have a gracious friend who is willing to make sacrifices for us.
On Ash Wednesday, following a soup and sandwich meal in the All Purpose Room, our first message is from Isaiah 53:1-2.
Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
Rejoice in your friend and Savior.
May God bless our time with him over the coming weeks!
