About to light that first candle. Am I ready to fully embrace the #KingdomofGod has come near?

Luke 21 makes it clear that following this Christ means giving all just like the widow, whose offering seemed small but was everything.

Jesus goes on to teach in this chapter that life in Him isn’t all sunshine and good news. Life’s hard. There’s stuff to get scared about. There’s stuff happening folk, that makes it sometimes hard to believe that there’s any option but to live in this between waiting in fear and trembling.

But… as always #theGoodNews is not just found in the words of the One but in the One who is coming in power and great glory.

There’s our #hope when fear wants to take over. Right there in the One who came as a baby and will come again as the #KingofKings to rule as only #TheOne can… with power and glory, showering His redemption fully and finally on a world gat trembles.

We light the #candleofhope knowing we #fearnot for His Kingdom has come near.

“The days are surely coming says the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made … At that time, I will cause a righteous branch to spring up for David and he shal execute justice and righteousness in the land”. (Jeremiah 33:14-16)
