The saving love of God unifies the lessons today. Isaiah proclaims that it was no angel who saved the people of old, but God himself. Paul assures the Galatians that God stepped in to send His Son into the world to make us heirs of everlasting life. Matthew recalls how even the actions of an evil king are stymied by God. Salvation should be treasured and celebrated, but it should never be taken lightly—for it is costly.
