The Latter Days
March 10, 2019 Speaker: AJ Roberts
Passage: Isaiah 2:1–2:5
During these latter days, the people of God live in the tension of the already, but not yet. Isaiah, through fine poetic fashion, lifts our eyes to see our forthcoming joy at the exaltation of God Almighty. Upon the Lord being exalted, the nations will forsake their ways as they submit to His paths. From Zion, the hope of the Gospel flows and carves the only way for the peoples of the world to walk in the light of the Lord.

Community Group Questions:
- What part of the sermon, text, or commissioning had the greatest impact on you?
- How does the tension of the "already, but not yet" impact your day-to-day life?
- Read verse 2 and consider: "This is not a topographical statement, but a theological one." How would you attempt to put this into your own words?
- Are you a "Come and See" Christian or a "Go and Tell" one? Why?
- Read Isaiah 2:3, Isaiah 42:1, and Isaiah 61:1-2. How do we know that this Servant King is really Jesus? (Hint: See Luke 4:16-21)
- How are you or how do you plan to hold the rope for this family being commissioned today? Take a moment and pray for them during group.
