In the Bible? Not God’s Word?

SermonSermon for the First Sunday in Advent
The Text:  Isaiah 63:16b-17,64:1-8
Secondary and Tertiary Texts:  1 Corinthians 1:3-6  Mark 16:1-10
16b You, O LORD, are our Father, our Redeemer from of old is your name.
17  O LORD, why do you make us wander from your ways and harden our heart, so that we fear you not? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes of your heritage.
64:1  Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence—
2  as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil— to make your name known to your adversaries, and that the nations might tremble at your presence!
3  When you did awesome things that we did not look for, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence.
4  From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him.
5  You meet him who joyfully works righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved?
6  We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
7  There is no one who calls upon your name, who rouses himself to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have made us melt in the hand of our iniquities.
8  But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.
