Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-47
Sometimes the world seems dark and broken beyond repair. Sometimes all of it is just too much to handle. 2020 has been a hell of a year, and we need someone to inject a dose of heaven into our lives. Advent is a time to admit how much we long for something better – how much we long for the world to be healed, how much we mourn the challenges and difficulties we have faced, how much we are desperate for God to step in and make it right. The message of Christmas is that God, in Jesus, has already answered our prayers, and is already at work, tearing open the heavens and stepping down into this world to save us.
