First Sunday in Advent
Sermon Text: Isaiah 64:1-9
"[1] Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence— [2]  as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil—to make your name known to your adversaries, and that the nations might tremble at your presence! [3] When you did awesome things that we did not look for, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence. [4] From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him.[5] You meet him who joyfully works righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved? [6] We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. [7] There is no one who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have made us melt in[c] the hand of our iniquities. [8] But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. [9] Be not so terribly angry, O Lord, and remember not iniquity forever. Behold, please look, we are all your people."
