God’s Zeal For His Faithful People (Isaiah 37:31-32)

Terrel Kesterson, October 22, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

This October 31st will mark exactly 500 years ago that Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the
door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, by which God set in motion the Reformation.
To commemorate this 500th anniversary, we’ll have Reformation-based themes this Sunday and
next Sunday. The church in Luther’s day had deteriorated terribly. The average person knew
very little about what the Bible says. Many of the teachers of the Word didn’t know much about
it either; or if they did, their knowledge was warped and confused with the added teachings of
men. The situation had been much the same in the days when the faithful Prophet Isaiah and
good King Hezekiah came upon the scene. Most people’s religion was shallow and lifeless.
God’s zeal moved and shook the people during Hezekiah’s and Isaiah’s time, and during the
Reformation in Martin Luther’s time. God’s zeal is every bit as powerful and active on behalf of
His faithful people today!

Isaiah 37:31-32

31And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward. 32For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and out of mount Zion they that shall escape. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this. (ASV)
