Advent directs our attention to the joyful birth of Jesus who will bring us salvation from our sins. Zephaniah Chapter 3 (verses 14-20) emphasizes this joy in Old Testament times that God will bring eternal life to all people by way of Christ’s coming. Psalm 85 tells us of the Lord’s protection when faced with worldly strife and misfortune and look to Him for comfort and strength. In Luke Chapter 7 (verses 18-35), Jesus speaks of John the Baptist’s greatness who called for the repentance of all people and a return to faith in God and His almighty goodness.
