Advent, Second Week, Wednesday

Comfort, give comfort and speak tenderly to My people, says our God. Go and cry out fearlessly at the top of your voice: Here is your God! Here comes with power the Lord God, Who rules by His strong arm; like a shepherd He feeds His flock; in His arms He gathers the lambs, carrying them in His bosom, leading the ewes with care. Isaiah 40, 1-11 Thank you, my God, for coming to me in Jesus; He is my comfort, my shepherd; May He walk with me with his strong arm. May we Christians speak tenderly of our Jesus in our world.
