Advent Journey Day II.
“God’s Plan Of Salvation!”(Mi.2:1-5&12-13).
The question, “Which comes first, Christmas or New year?”; is not quite childish as it is. The right answer can only be in context. In the context of the Church’s calendar, Christmas comes before New year in the sense that the Church’s year starts on the first Sunday in Advent.
An Advent Journey can be summarized as: “Soon and very soon we are going to see the king…”
We are expecting him as a baby, born to be the Saviour or as Christ the King in his second coming as Judge to decide on the nature of our eternal inheritance.
Preparations are often in high gear when we are expecting a high profile personality. Such preparations include leveling the bumpy roads and filling the potholes.
Waiting for Christ the King requires that we fill the potholes of our lives by putting right what we have made wrong.
Today, little known prophet Micah focuses his lenses on the inconsiderate wealthy and oppressive land-grabbers. God’s anger is directed against the rich oppressing classes who continue to get rich at the expense of the poor. Those who control the power structures of society may be few, but they own the place. The masses do not have a voice that can be heard. There is no one to defend them, protect their rights and safeguard their inheritances.
God’s anger burns against those big fishes that swallow the small ones.
God plans disaster against such people, and when he strikes, they cannot save themselves. The same land that was grabbed by the high and mighty, God will take and give to strangers.
Even so, there is hope for the hopeless! There is promise of deliverance: “I will surely gather all of you… I will surely bring together the remnant…One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their king will pass through before them, the LORD at their head.”
Dear friend, this message is to us who know that our Redeemer lives and believe in him. Believing means following, and following requires obedience.
The King is coming with the assurance of comfort to the discomforted and discomfort to the comfortable. Where do you belong?
Prayer of the day and week: Father God thank you for the assurance of our salvation in Christ Jesus. Amen!
Have a blessed day! Peace be with you!
Rev Babila Fochang.
