The prophetic words in Zephaniah 3 can be read by us as “fulfilled.” Fear not. Do not be discouraged. The Lord your God is in your midst. He is a mighty Savior. He will rejoice over you with gladness and renew you in his love. He will sing joyfully because of you.
When we come to the Advent season we focus on Jesus the baby but because we know the rest of the story, we shouldn’t read the Christmas story in the gospels just in the light of Advent. Jesus our Savior came that night but today we know he is in our midst. He does not want us discouraged with that goes on around us every day. He wants us to know the our Savior, our Lord, Jesus Christ rejoices over us. He renews his love in us every day. He sings over us just because of who we are.
The wonderful season of Advent is all about our Savior.
