[Title Slide]

I AM FORSAKEN
Isaiah 62:1-5
“Five Things Christians Should Never Say, #1"

We are beginning a series of messages on “Five Things Christians Should Never Say.” You probably have your own list. Somebody saw the title of this series and thought I was going to talk about “cussing.” That’s not it, though that would make an interesting sermon.

[Slide 2]

I was reading recently about the famous revival in Wales in 1904-1905. Churches were so crowded that hundreds of people could not get in. Meetings lasted from 10 a.m. until midnight, and were marked by confession of sins, prayers, spontaneous singing, and testimonies. One hundred thousand people were converted. Drunkenness was cut in half, and taverns went bankrupt. Judges were given white gloves, to indicate that they had no criminal cases to hear. But here’s what I thought was interesting. Coal mines didn’t operate, because horses refused to work. They were so accustomed to commands full of profanity that they couldn’t understand the new language used by Christian miners. (1) Now that’s a religious revival! But we are not going to talk about profanity.
Or maybe you thought we would deal with racist language or sexist language. We’re not going to be talking about these either, though a message on either of these would certainly be appropriate.
There are other phrases, however, that should never pass through the lips of followers of Christ, though they often do. The first one even slipped from the lips of our Lord. Still, it would be better if we could eliminate it from our vocabulary. The phrase is, “I am forsaken.”
