“And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 40:5
Angels sang, shepherds marveled, wise men worshiped, King Herod plotted, and Mary “pondered all these things in her heart.” The birth of the baby in the manger over two thousand years ago transformed history; the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us. He came into this fallen, broken world to save us. He left the glory of heaven so that God’s glory might be revealed on Earth to all men.
During this advent season, we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming Messiah. We rejoice in Him: Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. His glory was and is and is to come, and because of this, we rejoice!
