Washed Clean

It’s Advent Season!  That means a new church year.  The four Sundays in Advent are more than just the time before Christmas.  The season is one of preparation.  Just as you prepare your house with a tree and lights so also prepare you hearts.  The world had 80 years to prepare before God sent the flood. For 80 years they must have wondered what Noah was thinking. Before we condemn the world at Noah’s time, ask, “How different is our world today?” “Can things really get much worse?” Even if it is easy to point at the evils of the world, that doesn’t excuse the evils in our hearts. Advent means coming. Our God is surely coming in judgement. That is why we so desperately needed his coming at Christmas. That is also why we need him to come to us through his Word. Watch be washed clean.
