  2. Isaiah speaks to our time. He speaks to our rejoicing now and an anticipated joy-filled future. Christ’s coming, Christmas, brings them both.
  3. We will always need comfort until the reign of God, his kingdom, comes in full with Christ’s return, and our suffering and the sin that causes it is no more.
  4. The accent of Scripture emphasized that Christ is for you. Yes, you. He’s not for the perfect people of our imaginations. He’s not just for Abraham, Moses, David, Peter, or Paul. Christ is also for you.
  5. We’ve hung on every whisper of hope that this way of life would end and a new one would rise to take its place.
  6. God created humanity in his image and then inhabited that image. Not just for 33 years, but for eternity thereafter.
  7. When a manager faces imminent termination by his wealthy master for mishandling his wealth, what will he do? Where can he turn? In this challenging parable, Jesus teaches us that our salvation lies outside of ourselves and our works.
  8. When anything other than the gospel of Christ crucified for sinners becomes the center of the parables, we exchange the Gospel for the law.
  9. Where our sins are forgiven, there God in Christ is to be found.
  10. Should we really be surprised that it would happen this way, that the servant would suffer for our salvation and die for our forgiveness?
  11. Despite its familiarity and frequent usage, the imagery in "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel," is often underappreciated.
  12. When it comes to confessing the truth of the Christian faith, Christians are given the words. We don’t have to formulate them ourselves.
