Phillips: God with us

Sunday, November 30, 2014
    Advent I
    Feast of Andrew the Apostle
    And this was [John’s] message: “After me will come one more powerful than I, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
    —Mark 1:7-8 (NIV)
    We rejoice in the fact that God has actually been here—and that is one half of the meaning of Advent.
    ... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Good News: Thoughts on God and Man, New York: Macmillan, 1963, p.158 (see the book)
    See also Mark 1:7-8; Isa. 7:14; 9:6; Mark 13:34-37; Luke 2:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the true man.
