Each year, the church tells the story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection so that we can learn and know this very important story of faith. This new church year always begins four Sundays before Christmas in the season called Advent and continues all the way through the Sunday near Thanksgiving called Christ the King Sunday. Every week we hear a story about God’s great love for us in Jesus Christ and how God continues to be with us through the Holy Spirit. Today is the first Sunday of Advent. During the next four weeks we wait and watch and prepare for the coming of Jesus. Many, many years ago – before Jesus was born – God’s people in ancient Israel forgot to love God by loving their neighbor. They disappointed God and failed to be faithful. The consequences of their behavior were living in a foreign land without a king of their own. The good news was and is, despite their unfaithfulness, God is always faithful and always loving. God did not abandon them and promised to send a new king to save them and bring them back into a better relationship with God. Like us, they waited for the new Savior King. In today’s scripture, Psalm 80, the people are praying and asking how long it will be before God gives them this new King. They promise to never turn away from God again if only the new King would hurry up and come rescue them. admin Post author December 3, 2021 at 5:59 pm Reply Great dear very inspiring reflection Thanks and be blessed Theresa Kinyanjui December 5, 2021 at 4:53 am Reply Let’s seek ye first the kingdom of God and all things shall be added anto us Xmas is coming let us prepare our hearts for the baby in prayer…..Amen 🙏🏾🙏🏾 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
