5 paradigm shifts in our thinking about the church from Isaiah 2

Yesterday I spoke at Kingsgate (GY) on God’s glorious plan for the church. I focused on Isaiah 2 which is a prophetic picture of what the church should look and be like today. I spoke in particular about 5 key paradigm shifts in our thinking:

1. A church for now (v2)

“In the last days” that means today!

2. A church of prominence (v2)

Mountains not fens 

Martin Luther: “the church, or kingdom of Christ is an exalted mountain”.

3. A church of appeal and attractiveness (v2)

People streaming to it

4. A church filled with diversity (v2)

The nation’s coming together not fracturing apart

5. A church of gospel changed lives (v3)

Part 1..”He will teach us his ways” 

Part 2… “So that we may walk in his paths”
