Grapes Gone Wild

After a State of the Union address four chapters long, Isaiah picks up his guitar and begins to strum. Maybe he could regather the waning attention of his audience with a song.
He sings as a lover would to a wandering heart. By the third verse, the tone is plaintive, the key minor. In riveting poetry, Isaiah pours out the passion of the Almighty towards His erring people. Would his song capture our hearts and change our ways today?
Walk in the Light of the LORD

“Come, let us walk in the light of the LORD,” Isaiah begins. It was very dark in Jerusalem at this time. As in all societies before they are brought to ruin, sin was rampant. Yet they could escape the wrath to come by returning to God in repentance.
Isaiah withholds nothing that is true and needful for his people. With much prayer and godly fear, I aim to follow his lead. Please pray with me. May God turn us back again to walk in His light!

Isaiah was an incredible prophet. He lived and preached during an unstable time in Israel’s history. His message was both fierce and compassionate, national and personal, convicting and compelling.
He starts by pointing out the desperate need of his day: righteous judgment. I believe we will find comfort, direction, and strength as we study this incredible book together.
