The Way Up Is Down
Isaiah 57:15 (ESV)
15For thus says the One who is high and lifted up,
who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place,
and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly,
and to revive the heart of the contrite.
I. Introduction: We can not reach God. He is too high. We can not lift ourselves up into the presence of God.
II. A Holy God: Elevated
III. A Humble Man: Lowly
IV. A Healthy Result: Lifted
V. Conclusion: God lifts us up when we humble ourselves before him. Revival Comes through Repentance.
