Your God Reigns!

Five hundred years before the birth of Christ, a battle took place in a Greek port town that we still remember to this day, if not for the battle itself, at least for the location. For this was the Battle of Marathon, and we remember that day because of the messenger who, according to legend, brought the good news of victory to the people of Athens.

Today’s passage was written two hundred years before the Battle of Marathon, but presents the same picture: a messenger running to a city with very good news, even as the city lay in ruins.

Title: Your God Reigns!

Text: Isaiah 52.7–12
