The God Who Restores

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church, I continued our series entitled “What Is God Like?” with a message entitled “The God Who Restores.”

In my message, I told three stories:

  1. The story of the first Israel, from Abraham through the time of Isaiah the prophet
  2. The story of the new Israel, bringing together Isaiah 49:1-13 with the gospels
  3. Our story of God’s restoration in our lives and our future hope of ultimate restoration

You can listen to my message online at the Eastbrook web-site here. My outline for the message is below:

Story #1: Israel as God’s People

  • Jacob/Israel
  • Moses
  • David

Story #2: The Servant of the Lord (Isaiah 49:1-13)
