For Sunday 29 November 2020

 

As we gather in worship this Sunday at the start of a new church year there is real continuity with the Scripture readings we've been hearing for a number of weeks. St. Paul reminds us of the grace God has given so that we "are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as [we] wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 1:7). Isaiah prays for the Lord's powerful deliverance, asking that He, "would rend the heavens and come down" (Isaiah 64:1). The prophet beseeches the Lord in humility, confessing that neither he nor the people could claim any merit or favor from God, but must simply rely on the fact that the Lord had made Himself their Father. On that same basis we join with the crowds outside of Jerusalem in praying, "Hosanna!" which means, "Save now, we pray," as we wait in faith for the final fulfillment of all God's promises.
