Do you like reading dead peoples’ mail? That’s what we’re doing this week in Isaiah 9. Here’s the next bit:

‘You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest’ (Isaiah 9v3)

‘Enlarging the nation’ was what God promised Abraham – and God did it. God’s other great promise was to send Jesus – God did that also, 2000 years ago. Jesus himself promised to come to us a second time (and the Mayans didn’t know when that was going to be).

Jesus is God’s great ‘YES!’ to us. Let each carol you sing and gift you give this Christmas be a sign and reminder that God keeps his promises and is FOR us.

Jesus is coming – it’s worth being joyful about!
