Today is the 3rd Sunday of Advent. On this Sunday, we lit the candles of Hope, Peace, and Joy. “They will rejoice!” This is the first word of Isaiah’s vision in today’s text. The title of my sermon is “The Desert shall rejoice and blossom!” Joy is one of the important emotions we experience. Are you happy? Are you joyful? Every year, we celebrate Christmas. And the spirit of Christmas is joy. Throughout the month of December, many people are joyful because of the Christmas trees/lights, carols/all sort of concerts and cantatas, buying and sending Christmas gifts/cards, candlelight services, and family dinners. During the season of Christmas, people are more cheerful and joyful whether they are Christians or not! The theme of joy pulses through Isaiah 35 from the first line, with its glad lands and blossom deserts, to the last, when the ransomed people come home singing.
