This Sunday signals the beginning of Advent, literally "the Coming of Christ."
It is the churches' New Year's Day. Our readings call us to:
1- Focus on what God has done for us (Isaiah 64)
2 - Pray for the restoration of our relationship with God (Psalm 80)
3- Remember- Paul's words to the church, that we will lack nothing we need as we wait for for our Lord's return (1 Cor l)
4- Be ready or watchful -In Mark's discourse on the "The End of the Age"( Mark 13) we are reminded that no one knows the day or the hour of Christ's return, so we need to stay awake.
What should our attitude be as we await His coming in glory?
