Old Testament Lesson: Isaiah 40:1-5, 10-11 (Comfort for God’s people)
Gospel Lesson: Luke 1:26-38 (The Birth of Jesus Foretold)
When life is difficult in this sinful, broken world, God’s answer is always the same, to keep our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus. Jesus is always at work bringing peace, comfort, hope, and joy. God instructed Isaiah the prophet to speak words of comfort, because the Messiah would come! God’s answer for you is the same, keep your heart and mind fixed on Jesus!
