Assigned Reading: Isaiah 1:1-31

Points of Consideration:

  • What rich information can be gleaned from Isaiah 1:1?
  • Who was meant to listen to the message being indicated?
  • Who was the message from?
  • How did God feel about His children and what they were doing?
  • What were some of the ways God’s children were described?
  • What were the children of God guilty of/what had they allowed to happen?
  • Why is Isaiah 1:9 significant?
  • How did the LORD feel about the sacrifices and offerings being made to Him?
  • Is there a message of encouragement, hope, and/or warning that can be found in Isaiah 1:16-20 specifically?
  • How was God referred to throughout the chapter? (list His identifying names)
  • What does purge mean?
  • What does repentance mean?
  • How does the chapter end?
  • What was the main point from this chapter?

Personal Reflection:

  • Did any one verse resonate with you personally?
  • What is your #destination message from chapter 1?

Question: Do you give the LORD worthless or meaningful offerings?

Going Further: Compare and contrast the faithful city to its presenting state in Chapter 1. (Refer to verses 21 ->)

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Get your evil deeds out of My sight. Stop doing evil, Learn to do good. Seek justice, Rebuke the ruthless, Defend the fatherless, Plead for the [rights of the] widow [in court].” – Isaiah 1:16-17 (AMP)

December 2015 – Part 4 of 4 (The Pause and the Praise)

genesis20-20620in1

To pause means to temporarily stop in action, movement or speech. To praise, in comparison, means to express admiration or approval of someone or something. In terms of approaching and appreciating the LORD, it is essential that we as worshippers, followers, and children of the Most High God put these two things together. Neither a day nor a moment should go by when we don’t stop and pour out the fruit of our lips and our hearts to the Almighty. As we move closer and closer to the end of 2015 and onto 2016 (365 days), we need to intentionally concentrate our attention on the pause and the praise, in regard to the Savior.

PRAISE. (Assignment: At the beginning and end of each day this week, write down 1-3 statements of praise or appreciation to the LORD. At the end of the week, go back and review what you have written. Make note of how it impacts your relationship with God.)

PRAY: (Assignment: Take courage and try to engage in 3 different prayer methods this week. Pray to God with your words by way of written expression, song expression, and spoken word expression.
