As history has shown, there is nothing mankind can do to bring about world peace. Why? Because this world is full of proud and selfish people with sinful hearts! As the Apostle Paul writes: “In their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Rom. 3:16-18). In other words, apart from God, we will never know peace; apart from God, sin reigns in death. But Isaiah spoke of a day when all nations—even Egypt and Assyria—would turn to the Lord and worship him together in perfect harmony. Yet this kind of peace is only possible through the power of the gospel of grace. In this sermon, Pastor Matt explains that the hope of every nation is reconciliation to God through the cross of Christ.
