A Closer Look at Advent

Passage: Isaiah 2:1-5, Romans 13:11-14, Matthew 24:36-44

We like to think of our lives as secure, stable, permanent. We enjoy thinking ourselves as in control. This is a delusion. The truth is that God, the same Creator who formed the earth out of chaos, keeps creating, keeps pushing back the chaos, keeps working for our ultimate salvation. Look up!  This time, this often-frightening time of which we are in control of so little, is God’s time. And, yes, our redemption is drawing near.
