Sermon Title: “The Power of God’s Love" (Pastor Bob)


Who is the most loving person you know? Why do you view them that way? Is it because they love you despite how much you have sinned against them? We think God shows his greatest power in the destruction and punishment of the wicked. His greatest power is seen in taking the wickedness of this world on His shoulders and giving back love. Isaiah in this text answers the question, “How can the gracious promises of God come true for guilty people?” (Raymond Ortlund Jr.). Isaiah tells us this Servant of the Lord, though marred beyond recognition, rejected by people, and died innocent of any crime, was also our sin-bearer. It may have been a human plot to kill him, but going to the cross for our sins was also a divine strategy. His death produced life in us. How and what did Jesus feel about the Father’s plan? Isaiah 53:11 says: “Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities."
