On this first Sunday of Advent, we look forward with hope to the coming of Christ. We focus not only on His birth all those years ago, but now, perhaps more than at any other time, we look with hope toward to His Second Coming.
Isaiah gave us this prophecy about Jesus:
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.
Jesus was born into the world, a “great light” to lead us out of sin’s darkness. He lit our way to heaven, and He is coming again.
The world is darkened these days by the shadow of sin, but we have hope. We believe that Jesus is coming back soon to bring light to the darkness.
Jesus said this about His Second Coming:
For as lightning that comes from the east
is visible even in the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
As you prepare for Christmas by hanging lights to decorate the house and Christmas tree, do it to remember the words of Isaiah and Jesus. When you think about how beautiful the lights are, keep in mind Who they represent:
He is THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD,
and He is coming back soon:
Come, Lord Jesus!
