Psalm 89:1-4, 19-26
We have reached the end of our Advent journey. On Wednesday evening we will light the Christ candle and celebrate the coming of the Rock of our salvation into the world. The advent of Jesus in the world fulfills the covenant promises God made with our spiritual ancestors.
God covenanted with Abraham and Sarah, promising that their descendants would be a blessing to the world. God covenanted with Moses to bring to bring order and purpose to the people of Israel. God covenanted with David, promising, that his throne would be established for all generations. Yes, as the Psalmist declares, this covenant is a sign of God’s “faithfulness to all generations” (Psalm 89:1-4).
