I have seen his ways, but I will heal him. -Is. 57:18
Today’s services focused on Isaiah 57 and it was an incredible time together! I let the band have a week-off from practice due to all the work they did during Easter week, and they came together prepared and spot on. So amazed that I get to lead with this crew.
It was great meeting some new guests and some returning guests from Easter – exciting times!

From Isaiah 57
- The people have become apathetic (Is. 57:1).
- Parents still lay children on certain altars (Is. 57:5).
- They continued to pursue their pleasure over God’s presence (Is. 57:10).
- Our religious words will not satisfy a God who knows our heart (Is. 57:12).
- Only the humble ones can dwell with the Exalted One (Is. 57:15).
- God always disciplines out of love (Is. 57:15).
- God is high but he dwells with the lowly – transcendence and immanence (Is. 57:15).
- A good father makes his child feel the consequences of his sin (Is. 57:17).
- This peaceless wicked is different from the previous wicked who has hope (Is. 57:20).
- There is only one that God would not let up on – Jesus (Is. 57:20).
