The season of Advent allows our hearts both time and space to take in the full miracle of Jesus’ coming to be our hope, peace, love, joy and a millions others things. We pause in the moment of reflection to breathe in the truth that a Redeemer, a Beautiful Rescuer was sent from heaven to earth for us.
The glory of the coming of Jesus goes beyond all nations, creeds, tribes and tongues. In fact, the glory of His coming was indeed for them all.
For all who have ever lost their way, for the brokenhearted, the hopeless, the overwhelmed, the captive, the one who has ever felt rejected, betrayed or abandoned, for the orphaned, the homeless, the weary, the lonely and disappointed.
His coming speaks the universal language of “you are seen, you are loved, you are held, you are known, you are accepted, you are chosen, you matter, you count………… You. Are. Mine.
Never again, do we have to grope in the darkness, grasp in desperation. We have been found as scripture prophesied. A Savior has been born and His name is Christ our Lord.
He who was humbly cradled in a manger as the King of the Universe can now be cradled in our hearts, received as our Deliverer and worshiped as our Lord. His humble grace has collided with our emptiness and never-ending shortcomings. His grace says lay down the striving to be. I already accomplished that for you both in the cradle and on the cross.
Yes, the divine love story of all time has met our reality. Jesus Christ, the Savor of all, sent from the foundation of the world as the spotless lamb that was slain, came. He simply came and He will come again.
So lift it up, lift it up, endless praises to our God. Full of grace, full of love and He’s reigning over us. Yes, we know He is faithful. He is worthy. This is our God!
