Scripture Reading of Isaiah 40

Scripture reading, Isaiah 40

“Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. A voice cries in the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Read Isaiah 40:1-31


Hearing the Lord’s Message

Isaiah, 740 years B.C., speaks comfort to our generation during the corona-virus pandemic.   

“Comfort, Comfort my people” says your God. (Isaiah 40:1)  How does an Old Testament prophet speak to the things we face with Covid-19?  He reminds us that God is Sovereign over all creation and life. Isaiah tells us that real comfort comes from God’s presence on this planet.  God the Son came to destroy sin and disease!
