Indeed, God is coming to save you, to save us, says the prophet Isaiah. This a note of anticipation, of excitement, and just a little foreboding too. This is a word of eager expectation, a realization that something extra-ordinary - literally extra-ordinary - is amongst us.
At the height of our celebration of the birth of Christ is our eager and patient waiting at the salvation that is to come. Rejoice in the Lord, always, rejoice!!! For the Lord is near, our salvation is here!!!
