Read Isaiah 40:1-5:
“Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God. “Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and announce to her
that her time of forced labor is over, her iniquity has been pardoned, and she has received from the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.”
A voice of one crying out: Prepare the way of the Lord in the wilderness; make a straight highway for our God in the desert. Every valley will be lifted up, and every mountain and hill will be leveled; the uneven ground will become smooth and the rough places, a plain. And the glory of the Lord will appear, and all humanity together will see it, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
What about the fact that God became human brings you comfort?
When has God spoke with tenderness to you?
How are you preparing the way for Jesus?
God’s glory was revealed all those years ago when Jesus was born. It wasn’t a split sea, fire from heaven, or bread from heaven in the desert. It was Jesus, the TRUE bread from heaven who came to save the world from their sins, not just their stomachs. The intimacy of God’s actions through the birth of His Son is incredible. But it doesn’t end with the birth. God wants a relationship with us. And He wants it to be intimate. Close. Pure. True. Do you have that relationship? Take some time and speak to the Lord about your relationship with Him.
