Latest Sermon

Now He Shines the Long Expected (Isaiah 40:1-11)

Rev. Robert Recio, December 4, 2016
Part of the Of the Father's Love Begotten series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

In our first sermon on Advent, we looked at the cosmically grand reality that Jesus is the image of the invisible God and firstborn of all creation. This week we turn our attention to Jesus as the long-expected Messiah foretold by Israel's prophets. Far from the incarnation being a kind of Plan B to an initial failed redemption program of God, the Old Testament is the beautiful prelude to the redemptive work of God in Christ. The pages of the Hebrew Bible are filled with anticipation and longing that find their fulfillment in the Word made flesh.

Isaiah 40:1-11

40:1 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.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

Get you up to a high mountain,
O Zion, herald of good news;
lift up your voice with strength,
O Jerusalem, herald of good news;
lift it up, fear not;
say to the cities of Judah,
“Behold your God!”
10 Behold, the Lord God comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young. (ESV)

He is Alpha and Omega - Yesterday we began a brief new sermon series for the advent season.

While it might be rare for an advent […]
