Tuesday, December 15—A 2020 Winter Devotional

“For I the Lord love justice, I hate robbery and wrongdoing”. Isaiah 61:8

“Advent remains, with its paradoxical combination of waiting and hastening, suffering and joy, judgement and deliverance, apocalyptic woe and eschatological hope. It is the combination that counts. This is the way Christians live now, for ‘the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never mastered it.’” Fleming Rutledge

O God of paradox, we long for a way through, and we place our Advent hope in you. Amen.
