The Beautiful Story | Beautiful Hope | Tim McConnell

The Beautiful Story | Beautiful Hope | Tim McConnell

Sep 20, 2020

Passage: Isaiah 51:1-8

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: The Beautiful Story

Category: Old Testament



Prophetic hope. When something starts to be healed, we can begin to see what it might be like when it returns to full strength (an apple tree for example). The prophets caught visions of what was coming next as the work of God through the people of God continued on into the future. Restoration is on the way. Renewal is on the way. I can see it. It’s beautiful. We can’t stay here, we must go there! It’s too beautiful. But how will it come? Again and again we hear the Lord saying “I myself will do it.” We know fully what they only saw in part. When God says He will do it himself (“my arm” in verse 5), He means Jesus.


Can you find any beauty in 2020? God made the world beautiful. To philosophers, beauty can be a mystery. If you come along with us you will see beauty is the product of a beautiful God telling a beautiful story in a universe filled with awe-inspiring wonders. You too can play a part in The Beautiful Story of the marvelous love of God.
