“God’s Church is the Original I.H.O.P.”

Pastor John Gensmer’s Sermon: “God’s Church is the Original I.H.O.P.”

August 30, 2020 at Abiding Love Lutheran Church

Isaiah 56:1, 6-8

1. See How He Graciously Gathers Us

2. Bind Yourself to the Lord’s Service

“Maintain justice and do what is right,
for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed. And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord,
and to be his servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant—
these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices
will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” The Sovereign Lord declares— he who gathers the exiles of Israel: “I will gather still others to them     besides those already gathered.”
