On this second Sunday of Advent, we hear the message, “Prepare the way!” The Gospel of Luke, 3:1-6 shows John the Baptist heralding the coming of Jesus, telling the baptized people to prepare for the crooked to be made straight and the rough ways to be made smooth. The coming of Jesus, this time of waiting, is the holy focus of Advent.
Pastor Eric described Jesus as the “apocalypse of grace”. The meaning of the Greek word apocalypse is revealing or unveiling. What is being revealed is God’s love for us. Through Jesus, we “see the salvation of God.”
