Pastor Jonathan Shradar preaches on Isaiah 56 & 57. The church of Christ is meant to be a table of strangers desperate for Jesus.
Small groups questions:
How would the people of Judah have responded to the idea of foreigners and eunuchs being given the same salvation and made children of God? Why are we likely to respond in similar ways?
How does the grace of Christ free us to welcome the stranger into the family?
What motivation does the grace of Christ give us to live for holiness and obedience to him?
What is it that turns us away from our idolatry back to Jesus?
How do we stay low before the Lord? What is the role of community toward this end?
What does reviving of the lowly and contrite look like in our day? How can we tap into it?
