The Word Became Flesh
Advent ushers in the beginning of a new, liturgical, church year. The colors change to blue to signal the coming of a royal visitor. Advent is a time of anticipation for the celebration of the incarnation of God's Son. It is therefore, a time to prepare our hearts, our minds, and daily living for receiving this royal visitation. Preparation entails self-examination--"How does my thinking, speaking and doing reflect or fail to reflect the high regard I should have for the ultimate Christmas gift of God's Son?" Upon such reflection, the action often necessitated is repentance--a returning to the Lord with all our heart, soul, and mind.
This Sunday, December 10 - A Man Named John - John the Baptist is a fairly well known personality associated with the message of the Messiah. John was a relative of Jesus. John was a proclaimer of the Gospel. John didn't work about being "politically correct" which resulted in his death. John's mission was to prepare the way for the coming Messiah. John was the messenger. Jesus was the message. Jesus came to fulfill the message of the messenger: "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."
Sunday, December 3 - You Have My Word We are a bit skeptical when we hear someone say, "You have my word on it." Empty promises and empty vows are far too common today. God promises that we have His Word in Jesus Christ. God is connects with us through the incarnation of Jesus.
