Advent Second Sunday 2017: Hope

Hope.

It’s the second lit candle of Advent.

It’s the question of ancient Job.

If I hope for Sheol as my house,
    if I make my bed in darkness,
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’
    and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
where then is my hope?
    Who will see my hope?
Will it go down to the bars of Sheol?
    Shall we descend together into the dust?” –Job 17:13-16 ESV

The Apostle Paul provides the answer to Job’s question and the question everyone else has been asking.

“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus of hope” (1 Timothy 1:1, emphasis added)
