The Gift of Comfort

Posted by Unknown Sunday, December 4, 2011

During the Advent Season, I will preach a series of sermons with the theme, "God's gift to the World."

Today, my focus will be "The Gift of Comfort." Isaiah 40: 1 - 11

When you think about the circumstances of the economy, political and social affairs, the news is most disturbing. The tension that is felt in the air creates for everyone a sense of "dis-ease".

Our society and world are sick. The actions by corporate and political interests are sickening. Where do you find peace in the world today?

Isaiah steps to the plate with a powerful word, "Comfort ye, Comfort ye my people, saith your God."

These prophetic words give us comfort for today and bright hope for tomorrow. He tells us that, every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."

God gives to us the gift of comfort because in spite of it all, God is with you!
