Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Isaiah was a prophet, and like all the other prophets of God, he had a fairly simple message to deliver: Repent. If you boil down all that he had to say to the people of Judah, this was the core message he was trying to get across. He simply wanted them to return to God, in repentance, humility and dependence. And as Isaiah 1:21-31 will make painfully clear, God had some strong accusations against His people. They were guilty of some serious stuff, and God was not afraid to spell out their crimes in graphic terms. But one of the things we will see as we work our way through this book is just how stubborn fallen men and women can be. Granted, these were the chosen people of God, and they enjoyed a special relationship with Him that no other people group on the earth could claim. But like a father with rebellious teenagers for children, God was fed up with the actions and attitudes. He was calling them out and demanding that they repent or face the consequences.
