3rd Sunday of Advent

Luke 3:7-18 talks about trees, producing fruit and being worthy of turning and John-the-Baptist who spoke of the One to come.  John taught that preparation for God’s reign is not a matter of identity but of bearing fruits of merciful justice, radical generosity, and vocational integrity.
Pastor Eric asked us what kind of tree do we think we are?  Are we by nature good?  Are we a good fruit?  Are we a good tree?  Are we good wheat or are we the chaff?
It’s not about what we do because we are part of the forgiven family of God.
So, what do we do?
We should open the door and let them in.
