Welcome to Trinity

December 13

121312The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. - Isaiah 40:3-5

For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. - MATTHEW 3:3 (KJV)

This Old Testament passage from the prophet Isaiah and its corresponding New Testament recounting in Matthew herald the grandeur of the Lord and the birth of our Savior wrapped in swaddling clothes and laying in a manger.

I often listen to the words of Isaiah’s prophecy as sung in Handel’s Messiah (throughout the calendar year) and am constantly struck by its powerful retelling of the Lord’s manifestation in the world and I particularly marvel at the 4th verse.

Its allusions are to the natural world but its redemptive meaning is really applicable to our human foibles and frailties. It speaks to me of the majesty of the Lord while focusing on his mercy for all those who suffer. It relates the most important event in human history, the Incarnation of our Lord in the person of Jesus Christ, and its announcement is music to our ears.

As the Messiah chorus sings “Glory to God in the Highest and Peace to his People on Earth!”
