Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Second Sunday of Advent

The prophets, especially Isaiah, spoke of the coming of
the Messiah. This Messiah would be anointed with the Spirit;
the sevenfold gifts of the Spirit would be upon Him. He would
bring about justice. He would touch hearts so that the fiercest
of enemies would become friends, as the image of the animals
being together.
The last and the greatest prophet, John the Baptist,
reminded his followers that the Messiah was coming soon and
that they should repent for their sins.
We no longer have to wait for the Messiah for He has
already come. Now it seems that the Messiah is waiting for us
to come to Him that He may anoint us with His Spirit and that
He may give us His daily forgiveness and that He would give
all the power of the Spirit to be friends of one another.
