Sermon: “Oh, That You Would Rend the Heavens!” (Isaiah 63:7-64:12)

The Potter and Clay - Living through him

This is the video (45:43, 573 MB) of a sermon preached at Kaunas Free Christian Church, on February 13, 2022. The main text is Isaiah 63:7–64:12.

The prayer in Isaiah 63–64 is a great example because the faithful prophet knows what his people need: they need God to change their hearts, and they need God to be near to them. It is passionate, and thoughtful, and based on God’s promises to his people. It’s also beautiful for us to think about how God answered this prayer: including in ways that his people did not expect.

Enjoy hearing the sermon in both English and Lithuanian (back-and-forth)! You can also watch the service on YouTube.
