What if Jesus had come to earth in another way? He is God after all. He didn’t HAVE to plan to come as a baby. Have you ever considered why? Jason Gray’s song grapples with this idea in his song “I Will Find a Way” based on a short story, “An Advent Monologue,” by Walter Wangerin Jr.
Join me on a journey to Isaiah 43 where we hear the loving voice of our Father.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:

- God’s “tone of voice” and how we interpret it
- The phrase in the song that leads us to Isaiah 43
- All the ways God comforts us with his love in Isaiah 43
