A Promise That’s Big Enough to Save
Advent n. a coming or arrival. For centuries Christians have prepared for the coming of Jesus during a four week season called Advent. The promised Messiah came as a baby whose birthday we observe on December 25. Christmas invites us to throw ourselves wholeheartedly into saying “The promise is fulfilled! Jesus is born! God is with us! Let’s celebrate!
But there is something more. When Jesus came, not only was he the promise fulfilled; he made a promise. In the future, he said, he would come again bringing the kingdom of God in all its fullness. During Advent, especially, we look for signs of this promise. Though things seem frightening, look up. Look around. Stay alert. Think big. Hope in God.
