In countless churches across the United States, and probably around the world, this verse greets churchgoers every Sunday as they enter the sanctuary, “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord’” (niv). Every time I visit a new church or attend...

Gracious God, you welcome me and love me. Help me to be the arms and heart of Christ in my corner of the world. Amen.

Generalidades de la Escritura

Advent is a season for turning our minds to the coming arrival of the Christ child. Isaiah looks forward to a future day when peace will reign in Jerusalem. All nations will come to hear the wisdom of the Lord. The psalmist rejoices in going up to Jerusalem in his own day. Jerusalem is a center of peace and a place for righteous judgment among the nations. Both readings inform Jewish expectations of a bright future with the arrival of the Messiah. Paul tells the Romans that part of receiving the reality of the Messiah is self-preparation. We should put aside immoral living and put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew looks forward to the future return of the Son of God, which will happen at an unexpected time.
