We’ve been worrying about politics and sorting through political theories. But Advent is a good time to remember that ultimately none of that matters. The true King has come and is coming again.
The word “advent” is Latin for “come to.” Jesus has not only come, He has “come to” us. He is not only coming again, He is “coming to” us. On that little preposition hangs the Gospel. Yes, He comes to be our judge, as the Te Deum praises, but His coming above all is to us and for us, so as to save us.
