Comfort for my people – a sermon on Isaiah 40:1-11 by Rev. Ralph Adams.
Today, on the second Sunday of Advent, God’s eternal message is again couched in Isaiah’s words from this prophecy: ”Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.” ’Comfort from your God’ is the gospel I’m to preach to you, today.
I am to speak “comfort to you,” because “the mouth of the LORD has spoken”, as it is recorded in the pages of Scripture. (v.5) Where the Lord speaks, there you will find life and salvation and comfort, for men and women and children who ‘live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’
