Advent in Isaiah: Fear & Faith

Isaiah 7:1-17

Nelson Mandela once said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” As we begin a short Advent preaching series from some select passages in Isaiah, our first text (7:1-17) will shed light on how we are to face fear as the people of God. We’ll see that the appropriate response to fear is not to downplay the seriousness of the threats and pains that we are facing, but rather to remember the promises of God and His power to come through on them. Join us as we prepare our hearts to celebrate birth of our Savior!
