True Comfort – Comfort My People – Isaiah 40:1

“…true comfort consists in setting forth the entire truth concerning the people’s tragic condition and in causing them to see God as their only hope. When the heinousness of sin is faced, then the announcement of deliverance may be made. …Indeed, apart from that preceding declaration of judgment, the words of comfort are without much point.” –Edward J. Young “The Book of Isaiah” Vol. 3, p. 19

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
