Sermon Recap | No Ordinary King
In chapter 11, Isaiah continues to proclaim how God meets our needs within our broken world of sin through the promised Messiah. Instead of trusting in man’s strength and wisdom, the perfect ruler is empowered by the Holy Spirit and delights in the fear of the Lord. In perfect righteousness, he rules and judges without bias toward the rich or powerful. You cannot avoid, bribe, or escape this King. And yet, he establishes a perfect peace through the cessation of hostilities and the reconciliation of conflicting parties. Only Jesus could save us, and his cross is the rallying banner where all people can find an emphatic “Yes!” to all of God’s promises.
