First Sunday of Advent – Luke 21:25-36

Grace, peace and mercy to you from God our Father and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Something powerful and extraordinary is coming – it is of course the kingdom of God. As we look around us, it seems as though things could hardly be further from a godly kingdom. You know the tragedy and hardships that we face, whether it be on a global level, at the community level or especially a personal level. And yet the kingdom of God actually came among us when Jesus broke into our world. The problem is that we live in the ‘in-between’ times.

It is in the midst of these difficult times that Jesus encourages us this Advent season to watch and pray that we may stand before the Son of Man.

Heavenly Father, sanctify us in the truth, your Word is truth. Amen.
