The Terms of the Judgement
A Sermon on Isaiah 1:16-18
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
learn to do good;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow's cause.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool. (ESV)
The wonderful condescension and reasonableness of God; the unreasonableness of man in sin; the terms of the final judgement; all have sinned; all are under judgement; the righteousness of Christ; and its meaning for the believer.
