Isaiah warns of coming judgment because of Judah’s sin, yet notes a coming day of blessing.
- Repent – God condemns Judah for their sin: their insincere religious activities, their idols, and their haughty pride. Are you guilty of any of these sins? He calls Judah to repent and return to the Lord. If they will repent, God will forgive (1:18). If they refuse, they will be judged. For what sins do you need to repent? Do it! And then rejoice in God’s forgiveness!
- Mountain of the Lord – Isaiah foretells the day when all the nations will serve the Lord, and peace shall reign over all the earth (2:1-4). How does this certain hope encourage you today?
