Advent Hope – Live Ready

December 3, 2023

Isaiah 43.4
“Rejoice because you are precious in my sight and honored, and I love you.”
(NRSV)

Introduction

Advent is about preparing for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Scripture tells us that no one knows the day or the hour of Jesus return.

We are certainly closer to Jesus return today than when Mark wrote his gospel.

We can live in the hope of Jesus’ return.
Isaiah 43 tells us what God thinks about us.
God has redeemed us.
God has called us.
You are precious in God’s sight.
God loves you!
Revelation chapter 3 tells us of God’s desire to have us live in fellowship and relationship with Him.
Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.
-Revelation 3.20 (NRSV)

God’s moving toward us is ALWAYS at God’s initiative and doing.

Conclusion

What is keeping you from opening the door to God’s invitation to make you new?
