Faith for the Fearful

The Consolation of Christmas

Do fears ever keep you awake at night? Fears can be paralyzing. God calls his people to turn to him when they are gripped in fear. This Sunday we will see how fear-filled King Ahaz faced the choice of trusting God’s sign of a virgin birth, the gift of Immanuel (“God with us”).

Scripture References: Isaiah 7:3-14

From Series: "The Consolation of Christmas"

The prophet Isaiah was a messenger of God's consolation. “Comfort, comfort to my people,” he says in Isaiah 40. The prophet announced that the Lord promises to bring unparalleled comfort. For those enslaved by cynicism, he offers hope. For those lost in confusion, he offers faith. For those overwhelmed with sorrow, he offers joy. For those broken and fragmented, he offers peace. For those who wait with hope, faith, joy and peace, he promises Love. Join us this Advent season as we declare the promises of God to a culture that is waiting for consolation.
