The Matter of Darkness and Light (Isaiah 42:14-21)

Pastor Dale Jaech, March 19, 2017
Part of the ILCW-A Lent/Easter 2017 series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Heavenly Father, although we were blind and in the darkness of sin, You did not forsake us, but sent Your only Son Jesus Christ to bring us light through His obedience, suffering and death on our behalf and His glorious resurrection. We bless You and thank You that Your Holy Spirit has called us into the Light of His redeeming grace. Grant that we may never stray from Your Word, but continue to walk as children of Light until we are called to live forever in Your kingdom of eternal Light. Amen.

Isaiah 42:14-21

14I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once. 15I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools. 16And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. 17They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. 18Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. 19Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD's servant? 20Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not. 21The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. (KJV)
