First Sunday of Advent
 
"Draw Near...TO LOVE"
 
Scriptures: 
Jeremiah 33:14-16       Psalm 25:1-10
1 Thessalonians 3:9-13          Luke 21:25-36
 

In Luke 21:25-36 Jesus tells many parables about the kingdom of heaven coming to us; in every instance, Jesus describes a time of pain, suffering, and chaos about the Earth. Despite the disasters around us and the struggles that we are enduring, Christ says to pray for strength to escape these things; to look at the small victories as hints of the glory that is to come. There are people who will fail in this and falter, we should lift them up together as a community and bring them back to the fold of Christ’s love and the hope that salvation will bring. We are reminded to draw ourselves and our community toward the love of Christ and help people on their own journey to do the same thing.

God Leads the Humble

 

“Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.” Psalm 25: 8-10. The goodness of God is found in his call to all people to love one another and their creator. This calling is found throughout the story of God from the beginning of creation until today. When we reflect on the vastness of God’s love and goodness it is easy to be humble. We need this goodness and grace for hope and life to flourish around us. God leads us through this humble reflection to become a part of this great work in the world. “Guide me, great Redeemer, deeper into your love and grace for all people this day. Amen.”
