The Call of Isaiah

January 17, 2016 Speaker: Harry Long Series: Isaiah: The Trustworthiness of God

Scripture: Isaiah 6:1–6:13

1. Worship: A true, saving encounter with God

        - God’s holiness (Isaiah 6:1-4)
        - Our unworthiness (Isaiah 6:5)
        - His cleansing touch (Isaiah 6:6-7)

2. Work: Wholehearted willingness to do whatever God wills

        - Willingness flows from God’s cleansing touch. (Isaiah 6:8)
        - Willingness comes before the job description.
        - Willingness does not depend on the results. (Isaiah 6:9-10)
        - Willingness persists until Christ comes again. (Isaiah 6:11-13)

Application: Our calling as a church to worship and work:

        - A saving encounter with God and wholehearted willingness are basic.
        - Leaders equip the saints for ministry. How?
                Illustration: essentials for and the fruit of planting a garden.
                - The mission of grace.
                - The means of grace:
                        prayer, the ministry of the Word, and the sacraments.
                - The fellowship of the body of Christ.
                - The various ministries of service which grow from this soil.

4. Our ministry strategy at Sycamore Presbyterian Church:

        - The who, what, when, where, and how we do the above.

        The questions are: “Have you…? And are you…?” “Do you…?”
