You shall be called, “Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.”

Isaiah 62:6-12 is one of the suggested readings for Christmas Day. There are no shepherds in Isaiah’s proclamation, no star, no angels or magi, no Mary, Joseph or Jesus. There is only promise, the encouragement to hold God to God’s promise, and sentinels and ensigns to herald the fulfillment of the promise drawing near. See, your salvation comes! You shall be called, “Sought Out…Not Forsaken”!
