Romans 9:26 and “In the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”
Today Dec 2nd marks the beginning of the Advent season. The word “Advent” is from a Latin expression that means preparing for the arrival of a dignitary or celebrity.
I encourage us all to take the days before Christmas to focus on what Jesus arrival means to us as individuals, communities of faith, and how it prepares us to fulfill God’s purposes in and through our lives.
For today, consider what it means that we’ve become “children” of a loving and just Father.
