ADVENT READINGS!
WEEK 2: LOST & FOUND
We have a home. We have a way home.

Friday | December 13

Luke 3:1-6 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiber'i-us Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Iturae'a and Trachoni'tis, and Lysa'ni-as tetrarch of Abile’ne, in the high-priesthood of Annas and Ca'iaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechari'ah in the wilderness; and he went into all the region about the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”

Every valley. Every mountain. All flesh. We have spent time this week considering that God came looking for you, and loves you, and can be found by you. But now consider the vastness of God’s advent. He came so that every valley may be filled and every mountain brought low. He came so that all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Consider God’s vast love for all things, and ask yourself - How can you be a part of that?How can you be a part of God’s renewal of all things? Pray and ask how you can be a part of shining his light into a dark world, how can you be a part of bringing his joy to all the world.
