Advent Sermon Series : Isaiah's Servant Songs

Christmas celebrates the coming of God's promised Messiah, Jesus. Who is Jesus? What did he come to do? Hundreds of years before Jesus came, God spoke of Him through Isaiah the prophet. Isaiah's four Servant Songs (42:1-9; 49:1-13; 50:4-11; 52:13-53:12) paint a vivid portrait of the Messiah. From today (Nov 26), we will begin a four-sermon series on Isaiah's Servant Songs. As Christmas approaches, may the wonder of the Servant's love fill our hearts, that we might trust in Him!
