The Spiritually Lame Home

Isaiah 66:1-2 paints a beautiful picture of our eternal, sovereign, omnipotent God – the creator of all things. Yet this text informs us that, ultimately, it is not tabernacles or temples made by human hands that God looks upon with favor, or looks to dwell within; rather it is “he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.” But what exactly does this mean? What does it look like to be “contrite in spirit”? In this sermon, Pastor Dave explores these verses from Isaiah and proceeds to look at one of the most marvelous passages in all of the Old Testament, where this exact same word is found, in order to better understand our fallen condition and the truth of the glorious gospel of his grace.
