Sunday, December 13—A 2020 Winter Devotional

“The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn.” Isaiah 61:1–2

“In Advent, Christians remember that God not only hears the cry of the poor, but God was born one of the oppressed.” Shelley Douglass, Advent in a Crumbling Empire

Bind up the brokenhearted, O God.
