December 1st (1st Sunday of Advent): “Put on the Armor of Light”

Main Text: Romans 13:11-14 (Isaiah 2:1-5; Matthew 24:36-44)

Paul
is urging the people of God to wake up and get ready. What is one of the first
things we do after we wake up? The thing that moves us from our wake up routine
to heading out of the house is taking a shower and getting dressed. Each Sunday
when we begin, our confession or thanksgiving for baptism is remembering the
cleansing waters of baptism in which we move from death to life. From that
moment forward in the service, we begin getting dressed and ready to enter into
the life Christ called us to live. Paul says, “Put on the Armor of light.” We
are called to be light in the darkness. We are to be hope for the hopeless. It
is time to wake from sleep and stay awake. Abiding Presence is called to Live
God’s Love. Lets bathe in the baptismal waters of God’s grace and put on the
armor of light and walk in the ways of Christ.
