Advent 3

Every celebration requires the right attire. Do you have your Christmas clothes yet? The time is coming quickly. In these weeks leading up to Christmas, it is good to think about what you will wear to the celebration that will last forever.

The prophet Isaiah speaks of it this way:

…for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

On our own we are clothed with the sin stained clothes of a beggar. But that is not good enough for our God. Instead, this Christmas he has clothed us with the baptismal robes of righteousness given to us by a babe in Bethlehem by the name of Jesus.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
