Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.
Those of you who hold to the RPW probably won’t be having an Advent service today. But those who have come from a liturgical calendar tradition recognize that this is the season of Advent.
Advent is the season that proceeds Christmas. During this time we look forward to Christ’s return and at the same time we look back to Christ’s first coming, his incarnation. So today take some time to meditate on what it means to prepare for the coming of Christ how we like Israel looked forward to his coming. And how we can rejoice that he did come.
