23/08/2020 – Evening Service: When no one cares

Bible Readings:

Isaiah 59:1 – 21, Ephesians 6:1 – 24

Sermon Outline:

I  A single obstacle

Isaiah 59:1–2 (NKJV)

1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened,

That it cannot save;

Nor His ear heavy,

That it cannot hear.

2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God;

And your sins have hidden His face from you,

So that He will not hear.

II  A double failure – truth and justice have fallen

Isaiah 59:14–15 (NKJV)

14 Justice is turned back,

And righteousness stands afar off;

For truth is fallen in the street,

And equity cannot enter.

15 So truth fails,

And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.

III  A Trinitarian Salvation

Isaiah 59:15–16 (NKJV)


Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him

That there was no justice.

16 He saw that there was no man,

And wondered that there was no intercessor;

Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;

And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
