Worship – Comfort in Hope

Comfort in Hope – Week 4
January 28, 2024 at 10:00 am

Matt Walton lead us in worship on Sunday as we continued our series focused on particular passages from the prophetic Old Testament book of Isaiah which provide us deep comfort and divine hope. The text, Isaiah 44:7–19, first points out our very human tendency to worship not God but our own self-made idols born from our discontents with our station in life. The prophet urges us instead to take up an always available antidote to our bent toward idolatry—the transcendent wonder of God’s creation and an all-encompassing gratitude by which we recognize that our comforting God is perpetually near to us.
