A Place of Rest

(Romans 9:33 / Isaiah 28:16)

There is phrase used three times in the New Testament. It is, “The one who trusts in him will never be put to shame” (Romans 9:33; 10:11; and 1 Peter 2:6). Paul in Romans and Peter in 1 Peter are quoting Isaiah 28:16 verbatim from the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament How do I know that they are quoting the Greek translation rather than the Hebrew text? It is because the Hebrew text is different. However, the Hebrew text and its setting in Isaiah, which would be familiar to his Jewish readers, as well as how it is being used by Paul in Romans, brings the message of Isaiah and Romans in juxtaposition and results in a powerful message that we all need to hear. Trusting in the ROCK, who is Christ, we will never be put to shame for He is a sure foundation that will never be shaken. In Him we can find safety and a place of rest.

Sermon Handout


The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches. (Matthew 13:31-32)
