When the birth of Jesus is celebrated this Christmas, remember the words of Isaiah: “Here is your God!” Jesus joins Isaiah in bringing you back from exile, wherever you may be wandering. Jesus does the work of restoration by forgiving you and giving you a new life. He makes the rough places smooth and the crooked ways straight. Isaiah dreams the world better and Jesus brings those dreams to life.
- Isaiah 40:1-11
- Luke 3:1-6
