A Child Will Lead
Synopsis: Today we light the fourth candle of Advent that we call LOVE. In the birth of Jesus Christ the love of God the Father was born in a new and distinctively different way. LOVE is a Difference Maker.
On the firstof Advent my sermon title was The Voice of a Child. In it I emphasized that the birth of Jesus brought the WORD of God into the world as never before. HOPE was born in Him. As we continue through the Christian tradition of Advent we recognize that in Jesus PEACE and JOY were born. Today we complete our Advent journey with the fact that LOVE was born in Him.
So, in Jesus Christ of Nazareth a child has come to lead us to the fullness of life we cannot know any other way. Jesus is the Difference Maker.
