One of the South Church shepherds, James McDonald, prepares our Restore ministry teams for the next six weeks of study by proclaiming Isaiah 50.1-4.Sustain is the simplest of ministries, yet packs quite an encouraging and necessary punch into our lives as followers of Jesus. It is a ministry that is as simple as 1, 2, 3!1 time a week...2 friends get together to encourage each other in...3 spiritual disciplines: prayer, Scripture, and accountability.James adds fuel to the fire this week as he explains our rebellion, God's sovereignty, and yet determination and power through His Son to sustain the Body of Christ.Join us in Restore over the next six weeks, and today as James leads us through Isaiah 50.1-4.Today's passage:50:1 Thus says the Lord:“Where is your mother's certificate of divorce,with which I sent her away?Or which of my creditors is itto whom I have sold you?Behold, for your iniquities you were sold,and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.2 Why, when I came, was there no man;why, when I called, was there no one to answer?Is my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem?Or have I no power to deliver?Behold, by my rebuke I dry up the sea,I make the rivers a desert;their fish stink for lack of waterand die of thirst.3 I clothe the heavens with blacknessand make sackcloth their covering.”4 The Lord God has given methe tongue of those who are taught,that I may know how to sustain with a wordhim who is weary.Morning by morning he awakens;he awakens my earto hear as those who are taught. -Isaiah 50.1-4 (esv)
