Enslaved by Sin
A Sermon on Isaiah 1:7-8
Your country lies desolate;
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
foreigners devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.
And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a besieged city. (ESV)
The whole of man is tarnished by sin; the subtlety of sin; taking account of life; robbed and enslaved by sin; the experience of the young; the contrast between sin and the Gospel.
