The 3rd Sunday Of Advent: Joy

candle “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (Romans 15:13, ESV)

During this Advent season our hearts sing for joy at the coming of the King. He comes to seek and to save those who are lost. He comes to restore this broken world. He comes to heal broken relationships, and he comes to bind broken hearts.

He has come and he is coming again. May we live in that reality.

Stir up thy power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let thy bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory, world without end. Amen.
