The Third Sunday of Advent

from the Advent 2015: Born Is The King reading plan

Isaiah 9:6-7

BY He Reads Truth

Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”

Over the course of Advent, we are memorizing Isaiah 9:6-7 in four parts, so that we might sing with gratitude in our hearts to our Savior King. This week we are focusing on memorizing the first part of verse 7:

Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
– Isaiah 9:7a NIV

Save the lock screen below to your phone as a reminder throughout the week, and rejoice in the One who is our Prince of Peace.
