Spiritual Sunday — Happy 2nd Week of Advent!

Sunday, December 6, 2015

On this second Sunday of Advent, as we think about the coming of Christ, we light the purple candle of peace.  We take time to reflect on God's peace that he supplies to us without end in Jesus. While it is true that Jesus came to put an end to sin and its penalty once and for all, his coming into the world has accomplished so much more than that!  

Jesus' coming has given us peace with God that cannot be undone.  God has proposed from the beginning to restore us to himself by his own plan and power.  The prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in Christ's coming give us confidence and peace that God is who he says he is and that God does what he says he will do. 

For those of us who are in Christ, our peace is doubly sure, because we not only have the peace of God with us right now, we have the peace that comes from knowing that nothing at all, not even death, can separate us from the love of God that is ours in Christ Jesus our Lord.
