Third Sunday of Epiphany 2017 – Isaiah 9:2, 4

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

We are approaching the third Sunday after the Epiphany, and the lectionary passages for this week include: Isaiah 9:1-4; Psalm 27:1, 4-9; 1 Corinthians 1:10-18 and Matthew 4:12-23.

Isaiah 9:2, 4The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined…For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian. 

“For a child has been born to us, a son given to us…” (Isaiah 9:6a)  I attended a dinner recently where I was reminded that Christians should strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  Today, consider the ways you bring light to and relieve the burdens of others.

Loving God, bless our efforts to help those among us who are oppressed.  Amen.
