Safety, Fullness, and Sweet Refreshment, to be Found in Christ

This week the East of Eden crew examine Jonathan Edwards’ sermon “Safety, Fullness, and Sweet Refreshment, to be Found in Christ” based upon Isaiah 32:2. In this sermon Edwards unpacks the types of a man who provides cover from the wind, of a river in a dry land, and a great rock that casts a shadow in a weary land. Each of these point to some facet of Christ’s person and work of redemption. Christ Jesus provides a foundation of peace and safety for those who live in fear and danger. He provides satisfaction and full contentment for the needy and thirsty soul. Our Lord also provides quiet and sweet refreshment for him who is weary. All in all this is a deeply comforting sermon.

Psalm 90 verse 1 has been prominent in my times of biblical reflection since the start of the year. I’m grateful to hear about Edwards’ sermon on Isaiah 32 with such a similar theme.

Great discussion. It’s good to have East of Eden back in the podcast world.

Blessings In Christ,
