Read Hebrews 1:1-4

 

Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds.

 

He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word. When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

 

  From Pastor Judy Bennett, Wheeling Island Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)    God still speaks to us today – on that we would probably agree.  But in this Advent season, are the prophets’ voices loud and clear or drowned out by the extraneous noises of everyday life? 

            During this season in which we commemorate the coming  of  Jesus, the Son of the living God, into our lives – does it make a difference?  Or are we like Dickens’ Scrooge and exhibiting  a “Bah!  Humbug!” attitude? 

            We are the prophets.  Let us spread the news far and near.  Christ was born!  Christ has died!  Christ is risen!  Christ will come again.    

Enable me, O God, to sift through the noise of the season and listen to the quietly powerful sound of your coming.
