Week Four Advent 2015 daily reading: LOVE

Love

Week 4: LOVE

The readings for the fourth week of Advent explore Jesus’ identity, his work among us, and his second coming – all of which are rooted in God’s love for the world. Jesus came as a herald for and first fruits of the Kingdom of God, bringing life, light, and love. The ripples of his ministry have grown into waves that have touched every corner of the world. Now we long for the culmination and fulfillment of his work in his second coming. Where do you experience the tension of living in the now-but-not-yet of the Kingdom of God? During this Advent season and into Christmas, how can you celebrate the love of God? How can you be an agent of that love in your family, neighborhood, or workplace?

PRAYER:

Almighty God, in a lowly manger you came into the world and changed everything forever. Your healing touch and unfailing love brought sight to the blind, strength to the lame, and freedom to the oppressed. Now we wait expectantly for the day when there will be no more death, no more mourning, no more crying or pain; the day when you make all things new. So we pray, come, Lord Jesus, come. Amen.
