Isaiah: Setting Our Hearts On The Glory of God
As human beings we value people and things. We place certain value on things and others – God has wired us this way, but our value system can get off track as we place greater value on things than we should and end up not valuing things rightly. We value things because we are looking to get happiness, significance or worth from them.Isaiah is calling out the people of God here in Isaiah 2, because they didn’t value God as they should and begin to place worth and value on the things of this world, falling into idolatry, worshiping other gods, self and materialism. What we put the greatest worth and value on we ultimately worship. Isaiah called them to change and set their hearts on God (not just about what we believe though important, but what we value). Isaiah does this by taking them through the wreckage of history all the way to the glorious day of Jesus’ return. So, church, let us set our hearts on God, treasuring Him and His glory as the greatest treasure and in that we will find true joy and forever hope.
