Passage: Isaiah 64:1-9

Preacher: Jennifer Holz

Series: Wonder

Category: Old Testament, Advent



It seems to Isaiah like we are separated from God by an impenetrable barrier. In a moment of inspiration, he asks, what if. What if God ripped through the barrier? What if God did what we can’t do? What if He tore the heavens open and came down? Wow! Similar has happened before. In the past God did amazing and unexpected things on behalf of His children He loves. What if heaven ripped open and God came down? That would be wonderful.


Has 2020 left you feeling a little singed? Struggle can make us cynical. Cynicism can harden our hearts and leave us cold. But the gift of Christmas is bigger than you could ever imagine! Leave the cynicism behind and look again at the surprise of it all, the wonder of it all—that God would enter the world in the infant Jesus to restore what was lost and reach each of us. Look up once more at the Wonder of Christmas and let your heart say, “Wow!”
