Pew Leaflet Sunday 4 Dec 2016

REFLECTION FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT

Notice two things about John’s message to the religious leaders. Firstly, he told them that it was not enough for them to be “children of Abraham”. Their human ancestry and their position in the religious community did not automatically mean that they were participants in God’s Reign. In the same way, it is not our family, or church, or religious affiliation that makes us part of God’s Reign. Secondly, he told them that they would need God’s power, and the refining work of God’s Spirit to cleanse and equip them to live this new way. We need exactly the same empowerment from God. (Sacredise)
