Born Identity

During the season of Advent, there are plenty of things shouting “behold” and vying for our attention. It’s easy to be distracted by expectations posed by our families and society and by lists and parties and traditions. When we are caught up in the hustle and bustle, we can forget Advent is all about waiting, paying attention, and “beholding” the ways that God is showing up in our midst.

This Advent, we will take a look at several passages from the prophet Isaiah where God drew His people’s attention to His presence while they waited for deliverance from exile. We will connect these “waiting” passages to the birth narrative in the Gospel of Luke—where over and over again God says, “Behold! Look! Over here! Don’t miss what I’m doing!”
