These Isaiah chapters are challenging, but full of gems about the nature of God. This episode explores gratitude, miracles, and the wonderful things done by both divine beings and fellow humans beings. This portion of the episode covers:

  • Gratitude and emulation
  • Review of the Reading
  • What has Christ done for us?
  • What has God done for us?
  • How have others brought us closer to God?
