This Week at JMPC 12.8.19

It’s Advent! The season of anticipation that something’s coming. When I was a kid I knew what was coming! Christmas! For me it started the Friday after Thanksgiving. No – not because it was the Black Friday shopping day. It was the day my mother would stack the Christmas albums on the record player and start playing them over and over, the same songs in the same order. The tree would go up the same day. Lights in the windows, too. There was a train set when I was really young. I would get out the Sunday paper to find out when all the Christmas specials would be on TV because I didn’t want to miss any. Loads of anticipation. Then came the wait. Impatience reigned. Counting down the days. Would Christmas morning ever come? It was the longest month – ever! And then there was the anticipation of gifts. What was I going to get? I imagined all sorts of things. Wonderful, exciting presents!

Israel was in a season of anticipation. It had been for a very long time. What were the Israelites waiting for? A Messiah! What was that Messiah going to look like? A king like David. One who would lead, guard, provide, and protect. But most of all a king who would fulfill God’s covenant with Abraham. It was a very long wait. But there was also an anticipation of that particular kind of King. A warrior, maybe?

Lots of anticipation! Lots of waiting! Would the anticipation be rewarded? Was the wait going to be worth it? Was it?

Come and hear about it this Sunday, December 8, 2019 when Pastor Jeff preaches “The Song of Zechariah” based on Luke 1: 68-79. We will anticipate your presence. (Do you see what I did there?)
