Last Sunday’s Sermons: “Houses of the Holy!” & “The Salvation Gift”

by Sarah Boghosian January 6, 2014

Houses of the Holy: Isaiah 6:1-13

The first Sunday of 2014 (1/5) Liam Goligher resumed his Isaiah sermon series with “Houses of the Holy!” He expounded upon Isaiah 6:1-13, the famous passage in which Isaiah encounters “the King, the Lord of hosts” in the same year that the king of Judah, Uzziah, dies. Uzziah reigned for 52 years and in many ways was a dream ruler, taking steps to establish Judah as both an argricultural and military giant in the region. Though he strayed in the latter part of his life, his early faithfulness to God brought prosperity to the nation. Uzziah’s death, then, was met with political uncertainy, and it’s in this context that Isaiah declares: “In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple” (Isaiah 6:1). Listen to the sermon to discover the significance of Isaiah’s encounter with the King just after his earthly king had perished. You can view the full service on our Vimeo or YouTube channels.

The Salvation Gift: Ephesians 1:4-8

Continuing his Advent sermon series (who cares that Advent is over—this is a relevant topic for any time of year!), Marion Clark preached Sunday evening on Ephesians 1:4-8, “The Salvation Gift.” You can watch the complete service on our YouTube and Vimeo channels. This series will conclude next Sunday evening (1/12).
