December 10, 2017. "Hope for the Hurting." Isaiah 40: 1-11.

What is your favorite Christmas music?  Isaiah 40 is the inspiration of much Advent and Christmas music.  But Isaiah 40 was originally written to a people who did not feel like singing.  In our day, depression has been called the common cold of mental illness.  Signs of depression can be seen everywhere.  Advent is a season of hope, joy, and merrymaking.  Yet for many, the holiday season is the most depressing season of the year.  Isaiah 40 has a message of hope for depressed people.  God is Lord of all.  Show genuine care for the depressed.  Share the hope God has for depressed people.
