The Light of Hope.
On the first Sunday of Advent yesterday, we lit the purple Prophet’s candle in our wreath. Like the Wise Men, we know something special is about to happen and we are reminded that Jesus is coming. Like the prophets in the Old Testament, we hope for a Messiah to save us from the sin in the world (Isaiah 9:6-7). We anticipate our Savior’s arrival. Also known as the “prophecy candle,” this candle assures us we can have hope that God will fulfill the prophecies declared in the Old Testament about Jesus.
Dear God, light the fire of anticipation and hope in my heart. Let me stand firm in Your promises and live in Hope.Amen
Today, I will remember that hope doesn’t disappoint me (Romans 5:5).
