Saturday December 9
First Week of Advent
You are not alone, God is with you
  • Isaiah 30:19-21,23-26
  • Psalm 147:1-6
  • Matthew 9:35--10:1,5-8

Today’s readings are not only a prophecy of what is to come, but also a reminder of what has already happened. The Kingdom of heaven is here, we need not look elsewhere, for it is in the depths of our hearts. We need to fix our eyes on the Lord Jesus, and allow him to renew our true identity as sons and daughters of God. Through our baptism, we have been given access to the Kingdom, as we are now the adopted children of God, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. When we cling onto our true identity, we will hear the Holy Spirit whisper in our ears, “This is the way, walk in it” (Is 30:21).

We are then empowered and given authority to go out to the lost and to fulfill God the Father’s dream in our spheres of influence. It maybe in our own families, in our workplace, amid our friends or in our parish communities. When we speak with the authority we have been given as children, and declare the Word of God boldly in the situations we face, we will see victory in Jesus’ name.

Prayer: Abba Father, open my eyes to see myself as your child. Amen.
