Sermon: Easter 4 (OT)

29 April AD 2012 — Jubilate

Sermon Theme: Our Incomparable God

Summary: There is no comparison. No one is like God. Nothing else comes close. Because of this, we cannot understand Him in our own terms but can only receive Him according to His. He takes us when we are nothing — even less than nothing — and makes us His children and heirs of eternal life. He takes our sins and gives us holiness. He takes our weakness and gives us strength.

Isaiah 40:31
Sermon Text: To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing. Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God”? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:25-31
