Advent – Waiting

MARY WAITS WELL… She is a Servant of God God is her Source She is caught up in a bigger Story

Two Ways to view what we have from God: 1. We Are Gods Servant – We are stewards of what God has given us. 2. We Are God – We expect to be served by what has been given because we falsely believe that we have earned it and entitled to it.

WHEN WE WAIT WITH THE KIND OF HEART POSTURE THAT SAYS… “I AM WHO I AM BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR ME” WE WAIT WELL.

INTERNAL AUDIT – what is hidden in your life that is stronger than the one who is stronger than death?

What is hidden in your life that is stronger than the one who is stronger than death.

The world is turned upside-down by a radical vision that all people are invited to the table of Jesus.

The Great Reversal – The true story of the world is that Jesus is the true Lord of the world and because of that truth the great reversal has come… The rich were made empty while the humble are filled The exalted are humbled and the humbled are exalted.

Closing – God’s story reminds us that we are his servant, he is our Saviour and there is a story that we are invited into that is stronger than our ambitions, our strongest doubt – that can turn our story into hope, our confusion into peace, and on the third Sunday of advent, our sadness into joy.
