Advent #4: “Love Shall Be Our Sign”
Text: Isaiah 7:1-16
Isaiah presents a prophecy to King Ahaz, reminding him to stand fast, to have faith, because God is with His people. This prophecy reminds us to always seek God first, to stand firm in our faith, and to trust God’s wisdom and direction instead of our own reasoning. The promise of Immanuel was fulfilled in Ahaz’s lifetime, it was fulfilled in the birth of Jesus, and it continues to be fulfilled in our lives today.
