Advent Reflection 13

“They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it has been written by the prophet:” – Matthew 2:5.

Reflection

When we say Bethlehem the person who springs to mind is Jesus. But for those living at the time Bethlehem meant King David, the archetypal godly leader. All Israel was anxiously awaiting his successor, the Messiah, who would be born in Bethlehem.

Pray

As Israel was eagerly waiting for the messiah, so we pray: Maranatha. Come Lord come.

Act

As we look to the coming of Jesus, what actions can you take to make yourself and your community ready to greet him.

Archdeacon of Sherborne Penny Sayer
