A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Thursday: "Embrace God’s purpose"

(Reference: Isaiah 54:1-10; Luke 7:24-30)

Both Jesus and the Baptist were rejected by the Pharisees and legal scholars who insisted on their own version of who the Messiah was and what his message should be. As the Gospel puts it, “[they] rejected God’s purpose for themselves.”

In silent prayer, consider how you are fulfilling God’s purpose. And rejoice at all the good you discover.
