Renewal

As we approach the first Sunday in Advent, which falls on December 3rd, there's an air of excitement that fills our hearts. We adorn our homes with Christmas decorations, light up the exterior with festive lights, and set our phones to stream the joyful melodies of Christmas music. It's a challenge to imagine the toil and weariness that Mary, pregnant with Jesus, endured on her journey to Bethlehem with Joseph by her side. However, in their quiet moments of anticipation, they carried the profound realization of the fulfillment of ancient prophecies—the birth of the Savior.


In Jeremiah 23:5-6, the Prophet delivers a powerful message from the Lord: "The days are surely coming," says the LORD, "when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and He shall reign as King, and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the Name by which He will be called: “The LORD is our Righteousness.” "


Indeed, the LORD Jesus is our Righteousness! He stands in perfect harmony with God, His moral purity shining brightly. He is both fully human and fully Divine. Our Savior Messiah reveals to us the essence of perfect righteousness through His words, teachings, and the way He leads His life, culminating in His ultimate sacrifice. Thus, Righteousness is born in a humble manger, cradled and kissed by His earthly parents, and wholly dedicated to granting us salvation through the miracle of New Birth.


As we journey through the Sundays leading up to the celebration of His birth, we are reminded that these moments are truly holy. Families are blessed abundantly by the grace and love of our Lord, as we prepare our hearts to welcome the Christ child.
