Healthy Church and a Holy God

Isaiah's Vision for the Flourishing of God's People

We were glad to welcome many attendees in person and live on Zoom to our Equip session with Eric Ortlund, looking at at Isaiah's vision for the flourishing of God's people.


Isaiah's Vision for the Flourishing of God's People

God is in the business of building his people into a family of Christians brothers and sisters, and we long for healthy relationships with one another in the church. But many of us know personally how painful it is when relationships are broken. We know too how destructive it is, and how grievous to the Lord, when we don't treat each other with grace and love, however 'sound' our faith may be.

Isaiah's prophecy may not be the first place we think to turn for help in putting these things right, but Isaiah actually gives us a beautiful vision of the glory of God resting on his people and radiating right through their relationships with each other. Isaiah also diagnoses the sins that turn relationships sour and points us towards the holy God as our only hope. This Equip session won't offer easy fixes, but it will inspire you with a vision of God that can transform each of us so that more and more we are people who sow peace and love in the life of own church.

This teaching sessions were delivered in two 45 minute teaching sessions, with opportunities for interactions and questions.
