Allen M. Baker III, author of "Seeking A Revival Culture: Essays on Fortifying an Anemic Church", and pastor of Christ Community Presbyterian Church (PCA) in West Hartford, CT, will address the theme: "Living the Faith of Our Fathers: An Exposition of Isaiah 60: 1-3".
The Lord Jesus has fulfilled and continues to fulfill the promise of salvation to all the nations, and that they'd live this marvelous promise by faith. Today our guest will seek to demonstrate this truth by exploring what God is saying to us through Isaiah in these three verses he is addressing.
And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.
"For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the LORD will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
"Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising."
(Isaiah 60: 1-3)
What does this mean practically? Pastor Baker will guide us through the progress of the Gospel from Peter to Luther, the progress of the Gospel from Luther to Spurgeon, and the present condition in the west and southern worlds to find the answer.
What are we to do? Pastor Baker reminds us to recapture our glorious Reformation heritage.
