On this fourth Sunday of Advent, we see that Jesus Christ is our Shepherd-King who came to bring us peace with God and with each other. We have the promise of better days that Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace, is coming again soon to bring full and final peace to the earth.
On this second Sunday of Advent, we're looking at the refining love of God that is purifying a people for Him. We can hold on to the promise of better days for the people of God, where evil and wickedness and injustice will be no more, because God has already drawn near to us with justice and justification.
On this first Sunday of Advent, we see that hope is based on the promise of a Person. We can confidently expect that better days are coming for the people of God because better days have already come in Jesus Christ.
