Advent: The Scandal of Promise

leave a comment »

Advent Reading: Matthew 1:18-25

One of the many lessons that one can glean from the remarkable opening of the Greatest Story ever told is this: God-ordained change, some promise of God, is often encased in scandal and seeming contradiction.

The scandal of Jesus’ incarnation was and is a clash of common and uncommon, the pedestrian and the providential, known knowns and inviting unknown. Somewhere in the mish-mesh of the “hows” and “whys” of Advent is the wondrous reality that Jesus Christ, God the Son, arrived, delivered from the womb to deliver us from the penalty, pain, and power of sin.

Selah.
