Advent 2022 – Day 26: John 3:28-29

You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.’ The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete.

John 3:28-29, ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

Jesus came to live amongst us, and His true followers look to Him.

True followers of Jesus rejoice to hear Him and to point others toward Him.

People may scoff, and they may even claim we think of ourselves as high and mighty and christs ourselves.

Yet, God came to us, showing us He is the source of all goodness and power, saving His Bride – the Church – from her sin.

Jesus has saved His people, and we will want to show the world who He is.

The world may think we want to be their saviors, but we know He is the rightful King and Savior.

Our refutation is not done the same way as the world.

Yes, we deny ourselves and point to Christ, but we do it by pointing to the Scriptures that reveal His deity and works.

We remember and proclaim the prophecies of Jesus’ first coming, His death and resurrection, and that He is coming again for His Bride.

May we seek the Lord who saves us and is coming again to claim His Bride.
