Second Sunday in Advent 2019 - Peace (Isaiah 53:1-6)Tim Douglass, December 8, 2019
Part of the Advent 2019 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
For the second Sunday in Advent our topic is Peace. It seems like peace is one of those words that is pretty easy to define. We generally just take the basic dictionary definition of the absence of conflict and go with that. There is only one problem with that definition, it doesn’t always go far enough when we consider what peace really means and implies in Scripture. So as we consider the peace that God repeatedly promises His people throughout history, let’s try to see beyond the obvious to what it really means when God promises us His peace.

1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (KJV)
