The Fruit of Repentance

Session 4.51 for December 16, 2012

During the Advent season, we are busy preparing for Christmas – presents, decorations, and laying out our manger scenes. Yet, John’s idea of preparing for Christ’s coming to the world is an entirely different matter. John reminds us that Jesus is much more than a sweet baby born into a dirty manger. Jesus grew up. Jesus called for repentance and action. As we prepare for Advent, we are not preparing for a little bundle of joy. Rather, we are preparing for a savior who will baptize the world with the Holy Spirit and fire, a God who calls us to take action and share the news of hope with the world.
