Advent Worship Services
This Is My Son: Just as God’s people of old waited with faith in the coming Messiah, so is our Advent anticipation of Christmas, as we sing of the Savior, “Your people long to greet You, My hope, my heart’s delight!” (LSB 334:1). Our hopes and fears are real. They can distract us from God’s promises. God’s promise was from the beginning spoken to Adam and Eve. Salvation would come through the woman’s offspring (Genesis 3:15). But it would not be Cain, the son of Adam, nor Ishmael, the son of Abraham, nor Absalom, the son of David. The true Son of Adam and Abraham and David is the Son of God. Our attention and faith thus direct our hopes and fears to God’s Son, in whom we receive adoption as sons and daughters in the family of God.
