Have you ever felt like no-one sees you? No-one hears you when you need help? No-one cares that you are hurting? The disciples saw the blind man only to ask about sin. The Pharisees never even really looked at the man. They couldn’t even positively identify his face, even after years of walking by him. But Jesus saw him, Jesus knew him, Jesus corrected people’s view of him, and ultimately corrected the man’s view of God. What’s your view of God today? What’s God’s view of you?

As the judge of humanity, Jesus serves as the plaintiff who charges the world guilty of sin and declares it convicted to death. Yet as the Savior of the world, Jesus takes the sin of the world upon him and fulfills in his body the death that the world deserves. True discipleship is the transfer from darkness to light, from lies to truth, from enslavement to freedom, and from death to life. All that is possible in Christ.

Chapter 8 continues Jesus’ declaration of who He is. At the Feast of Tabernacles, part of the liturgy was very probably Zechariah 14:5b-8 (. . . And there shall be a unique day, which is known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but at evening time where shall be light. On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem. . .) Jesus had stood up during the Feast of Tabernacles, first declaring, “I am the living water.” Then in our text for today (John chapter 8), He declares, “I am the Light of the World.” Jesus’ statements were very clear connections to OT prophecies. He was claiming to be the Savior and promised Messiah.

Today as we finish 2017 we will look at the closing of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. This letter is a very encouraging little letter to this church that he loves very much. The church in Philippi was the first church that Paul planted in Europe. You can read the story of how that happened in Acts 16. It’s just an unbelievable story. If you read through the letter, it’s very obvious that Paul has great affection for these believers in Philippi. Most of the letters in the New Testament are full of correction and reproof. This one is not. Overall, this is a very positive letter. In fact, it’s arguably the most positive letter that Paul wrote in terms of what he wanted to say to the church. So his purpose in writing this letter is to encourage them. He’s in jail when he wrote it, so he wanted to encourage them. But then he also wanted to give them some instruction and thank them for a gift of support that they had sent him while he was in prison. Paul is going to deliver one of the most treasured promises in scripture with a masterful stroke. “My God will supply every need of your according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” May God give us future grace to rest in his supply to his Glory as we look into the New Year.

The Servant of the Lord (whose words are prophesied in Isaiah 61) would be the ultimate preacher and the Redeemer of Israel who rescues them. Jesus speaks of the initial fulfillment of this promise, referring it to His ministry of providing salvation’s comfort to the spiritually oppressed (Luke 4:18-19). He quotes from Isaiah 61:1-2 and says specifically, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” He was claiming to be the Messiah who would bring good news of great joy to all people, to all who will believe in His name. May the Lord fill our hearts with joy this season as we consider the Messiah, Jesus.

In Isaiah's time, Israel had a long, persistent history rebellion, immorality, cruelty to the poor, and idolatry. By the time we get to Isaiah 40, Israel was about to be destroyed as a nation. Life was insecure, with major superpowers of the day fighting for control of the region. This chapter is addressed to those who are in exile and it is a message of comfort and consolation. As captive people in a foreign land, it was easy to get lost in distress and discouragement. When the people focused on the horizontal plain, doubt and fear seemed overwhelming, so the prophet looks at the people and says, "Behold your God," he is coming to comfort his people. In whatever distress or difficult situations we might be facing this Advent season, the call of the prophet rings true today just as it did long ago. We too must behold our God and find comfort in his presence!

The word “advent” simply means “the appearance of a notable person.” In the Christian calendar, it refers to the arrival of Christ. His First Advent is a reference to His incarnation and Christmas. His Second Advent is a reference to when He comes again. So, we are people who reside between Advents. We look both ways. As we look back we celebrate the birth of Jesus and as we look forward we long for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. We, like the disciples of Mark 13, find ourselves asking the same questions. How long, Jesus, until you come back? How will we know when you will come for us? Yet, while no one knows the exact day or hour of His return. We find ourselves realizing that our only hope is His return. Through the words of Christ, we will see that His second coming will be obvious, comforting and motivating.
