Sermons on By the Spirit

Isaiah 59:15-21

God looks and sees that there is no one righteous, no one to deliver His people, and so He Himself acts as deliverer, putting on the armor of God. He sends a Savior to Zion who banishes ungodliness from her by the Word and Spirit. Ultimately, the prophets see only the work of the Messiah as the true hope for the people of God in their sin.

Matthew 12:15-21

In Matthew 12:15-21 Matthew shows that Jesus healing many shows that he is the one who fulfills Isaiah 42:1-4, the first Servant Song speaking about the coming Messiah. Christ is the chosen one of God, loved by him, filled with the Spirit, who brings salvation to the Gentiles. He is the humble savior, mighty enough to defeat all enemies and gentle enough to care for those who are weak.
