Advent WK 2B (2017)

In this Season of pre-Christmas preparation when we can get caught up in anticipation of celebrating Dec. 25, today’s gospel challenges us to acknowledge whatever within us is opposing His coming. The gospel challenges us to “repent,” to return our minds and hearts to God because “the Kingdom of God is at hand.” Each of us must make a decision to turn away from the Kingdom of Evil and toward God, His Kingdom. For our hopes and fears meet in Jesus the Christ, the Messiah. We must decide which Kingdom we will serve. If we choose God’s Kingdom, then the way into this Kingdom is heralded by John the Baptist: “Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!”
