Dec. 4, 2015 (Isa 29:17-24)

“On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; and out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see.” Most of us don’t like to wait, think of the lines at a bank, or Kroeger’s, etc. Waiting is a major theme of the Bible. Advent is a season of waiting. In Advent we wait for redemption, fulfillment, wholeness, and peace. (Things not fully here yet) We wait but we also need to work for God’s promised future in the here and now. We must live in hope of that fulfillment.
