Water From Salvation’s Wells

Isaiah’s confidence in God’s salvation overflows in praise, as God is both his strength and his song. The prophet is eager that God’s fame be broadcast among the peoples with a lot of shouting and singing. What motivates this worship is that Israel’s holy God is great in their midst. This is the heart of Advent: God in our midst. This is why we’ve come to worship today. And in Isaiah’s beautiful phrase, as we joyfully remind each other of these truths, we are drawing water from the wells of salvation. So let all the thirsty come and drink in this good news!
