Advent Reflection: To Whom Can You Liken Me as an Equal?
In the first advent reflection we discussed the incredible role of the prophet Isaiah throughout the entire Advent season. He is so important for us because time and again he both calls us to something greater while at the same time helping us to understand that absolute grandeur and presence of God.
Because of the brokenness in our lives and the difficulties in our world, we can be tempted to forget that God is indeed God. We can make God too small. Isaiah reminds us for today’s Advent reflection that we must remember to see God in all His grandeur and greatness. Do you not know or have you not heard? The LORD is the eternal God, creator of the ends of the earth.
This God is not puny, or weak, but rather we can be. We can be puny in the ways we ignore those in need. We can be weak in not helping others to come to know the importance of a relationship with Jesus. We can be puny and weak when we find brokenness to be accpetable.
But the gospel reminds those who are broken that there is a way to fullness. “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.”
Each day during the season of Advent, you will find an advent reflection from faculty and students at Christian Brothers College High School. To find all the reflections, go to our Advent Reflections page.
