Readings: Is 52:7-10; Ps 98:1,2-3,3-4,5-6; Heb 1:1-6; Jn 1:1-14
“COME.” This has been our cry while hopefully waiting for our Savior Jesus Christ. This prayerful supplication is a confession of a wounded race that is incapable of coming closer to God without God himself extending his hands. At the same time, it is our confession about the One who is coming. He who is coming is God who will strip himself of his divinity (cf. Phil 2:5-11) to reconcile us back to the Father (cf. 2 Cor 5:18).
