Paths of Steadfast Love and Faithfulness
Advent 2018 – Epiphany 2019
Bethel College Mennonite Church
Advent is a time for us to remember that in response to the pain of this world, God comes to us in Jesus, God’s path of steadfast love and faithfulness (Psalm 25:10). We are invited to wait and watch and wonder: what does this path look like? Where do we see bits of it breaking into our world,here and now? How might we be invited to walk alongside Jesus on it?
As we enter into this season of waiting and longing, consider joining the psalmist in this prayer from Psalm 25:4-5: Make us to know your ways, O LORD; teach us your paths. Lead us in your truth and teach us, for you are the God of our salvation; for you we wait all day long.
