As we conclude our series through the book of Isaiah, we consider again how different life is when we remember that the LORD is the central reality of all of life. As the book concludes, its perspective shifts to remind us that the LORD is not only the central reality of this life, but also of the life to come. The eternal promises of God remind us that we have an eternal hope that is guaranteed and assured, even when we struggle in this fallen world with our fallen hearts.

Application Questions

  1. As we look back on our series through the book of Isaiah, how has the fact that the LORD is the central reality in all of life shaped your perspective in new or renewed ways?
  2. What injustice do you see in the world? How does the fact that the LORD will return and bring perfect justice give you hope?
  3. What idolatry do you see in your own heart? How does the fact that the LORD will return and bring perfect joyful worship give you hope?
  4. How can you remember the assured promise of Jesus’ return in the midst of your daily life in this fallen world?
