Lenten Midweek Sermon \ Pastor Jeremy Swem \ March 18th, 2015

This is the Word of the Lord: Thanks Be to God, according to Isaiah the 49th Chapter verses 1 to 6.

Listen to me, O coastlands,
and give attention, you peoples from afar.
The LORD called me from the womb,
from the body of my mother He named my name.
He made my mouth like a sharp sword;
in the shadow of His hand He hid me;
He made me a polished arrow;
in His quiver He hid me away.
And He said to me, “You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”
But I said, “I have laboured in vain;
I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the LORD,
and my recompense with my God.”
And now the LORD says,
He who formed me from the womb to be His servant,
to bring Jacob back to Him;
and that Israel might be gathered to Him—
for I am honoured in the eyes of the LORD,
and my God has become my strength—
He says:
“It is too light a thing that you should be My servant
to raise up the tribes of Jacob
and to bring back the preserved of Israel;
I will make you as a light for the nations,
that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

This is the Word of the Lord: Thanks Be to God, according to Isaiah the 49th Chapter verses 1 to 6.
