“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you I give you.” On this, the second Sunday of Advent, we remember that God became man in Jesus Christ to bring peace into our broken world. It is our fervent prayer that our world embrace the peace of Christ.
What does the 2nd week of Advent represent?The first represents Isaiah and other prophets in the Bible that predicted the coming of Jesus. The second represents the Bible. The third represents Mary, the mother of Jesus. The fourth represents John the Baptist, Jesus’ cousin, who told the people in Israel to get ready for Jesus’ teaching.
Luke 1:78-79New King James Version
78 Through the tender mercy of our God,
With which the [a]Dayspring from on high [b]has visited us;
79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
