We all turn to something to save us. We have somewhere we go, something we go to, when we feel beaten down, tired, when we know we've made a mistake, we go somewhere for comfort. Yet, all these things don't really deliver. These things only comfort a time and then leave us. Sometimes they even enslave us further, and make things worse. But there is one who yoke is light. One who has come to truly save us, and his burden is easy to bear. Jesus has come to bring a true salvation, one that lasts, and one that really frees us. This Savior was predicted in 700 BC by the prophet Isaiah, and campus minister Doug Serven shows us Isaiah's prediction of this great salvation in his message from the book of Isaiah to the Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma.

The book of Isaiah is a book of hope, and it's main hope is the prediction running throughout the book of the One who will come. One born of a virgin to be the ideal ruler from the house of David. This is the prophecy, the promise, and the hope of the book of Isaiah. Someone born of a virgin, who is going to be the great King, that is from the line of David. This seems strange to us, but it is foretelling the coming of Jesus Christ, the great King of the world from David, born of the virgin Mary, and the hope we are all looking for in our every day lives. Campus minister Doug Serven shows us how Jesus is the hope we've been waiting for, and the hope predicted in this ancient book in his message from Isaiah to the Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma.

Sometimes, we think we're the best at things. That we know what's going on and everyone else needs to change. Then we find ourselves in the presence of true greatness, of someone so much better than us, and we feel small. Isaiah found himself in the presence of greatness, of THE greatness, of God Himself, and Isaiah was undone. His only hope for being in God's presence was the grace of God which cleansed Isaiah. This Cleansing is also offered to us in Jesus Christ, and Rev. Doug Serven shows us how this story in Isaiah 6 points us to Jesus in his message to the Reformed University Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma.
