Advent, Week 3
God’s promise is to make all things new, especially when what is happening is all things bad. Through sending Jesus as Messiah, Father God has done this—and through His Spirit, Father God continues to bring beauty out of ashes, joy out of mourning.
Key Verse: The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. (Isaiah 61:1 [NIV])
