Rejoice Because…God is Good

Isaiah 35:1-10 | Sermon Resources | 27 November 2022

Sermon Summary

Pastor Billy kicks off Advent this week with a sermon series from the book of Isaiah, The Weary World Rejoices. Our passage is Isaiah 35:1-10 and we will be thinking about how the goodness of God produces joy in our lives.

In fact, if you are troubled about the Father’s love, understand that you can no more trouble and burden him than by your unkindness in not believing it.

John Owen (Communion With God)
