Arnold: going through judgment

Sunday, December 6, 2015
    Advent II
    Feast of Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, c.326
    While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
    —Luke 2:6-7 (NIV)
    Advent is a time when we await God’s intervention in the need of the present day, as he intervened then in Jesus’ birth. We long for the highest power to rescue this unhappy, torn humanity that knows so little community. Now is the time to ask God for a radical change in all things, even if this means we must go through judgment.
    ... Eberhard Arnold (1883-1935), When the Time was Fulfilled, Farmington, PA: Plough, 1965, p. 3 (see the book)
    See also Luke 2:6-7; Mark 1:15; Rom. 8:22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we celebrate Your coming.
