Saved By Grace
A Sermon on Isaiah 52:1-3
The LORD's Coming Salvation
put on your strength, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city;
for there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.
Shake yourself from the dust and arise;
be seated, O Jerusalem;
loose the bonds from your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
For thus says the LORD: “You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.” (ESV)
The world unaware of the cause of its troubles; man has sold himself; man is a slave to the desires of his mind; the beautiful garments offered by Christ; the free gift of God: salvation.
