Majesty

Majesty - Advent Devotional @ Walton United Church, Oakville, Ontario

The prophesies of the birth of Jesus continue to confound our conventional expectation that bigger is best. Jesus’ origins are designed to appear to contradict his strength and majesty, even as his life challenges our expectations of both those qualities.


Dear Lord, majestic God,
God of the soaring skies and the smallest seeds, all creation is full of your glory. Even as we praise your name, remind us that you are Lord of the small and the weak, and that your greatness lies in your gentle strength and your humble majesty.
Amen.

Micah 5: 2,4

The Peaceful Kingdom

2But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah,
    who are one of the little clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
    one who is to rule in Israel,
whose origin is from of old,
    from ancient days.
4And he shall stand and feed his flock in the strength of the Lord,
    in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall live secure, for now he shall be great
    to the ends of the earth;
