Advent 4 Prophetic Expectation

Sermon of Sunday, December 22, 2013

Preacher: Francis Noordanus

Scriptures: Isaiah 7:10-16, Romans 1:1-7, Matthew 1:18-25


God's words and actions in the past, both in the Bible and our personal experience, are worthy of deep reflection in a way that many moderns find difficult amidst a hurried life. In this message Francis opens the links between past events and present expectation established between Isaiah and Matthew and as this is found in Paul's introduction to his letter to the Romans. The ways God has saved in the past establishes expectation for the present. This was very much alive when Matthew and Paul wrote about Jesus in a way we can imitate.
