Wednesday the Third Week of Advent

The Old Testament prophets delivered a message they themselves did not accomplish. This sets Jesus apart from all other prophets. He is both the messenger of redemption and the means through which it is accomplished.

Until Jesus, profits were only the bearer of God’s word, pointing to another who would ultimately fulfill it. Jesus comes to us as the prophet bringing the word of God, but he is also the one who will accomplish the Salvation he and all the other prophets proclaimed.

Prayer: Jesus, I need you. I am humbly calling out to you,
I invite you into my life to be my Lord and Savior.
Lord, help me to trust you. Help me to love you.
Help me to understand your grace, your mercy, and your peace.
Thank you Lord,
Amen.
