Today we celebrate the second Sunday in Advent. The scripture passages this morning from Malachi and Luke both have an emphasis on repentance. In Malachi, the Lord is likened to a refiner’s fire, purifying and transforming the people of Israel to prepare them for an encounter God. The epistle reading from  Philippians begins in thanksgiving. The Apostle Paul gives thanks in remembering, even as he looks toward the future that God is creating in God’s people: “The one who began a good work in you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.” Luke’s gospel portrays John the Baptist preaching repentance in the wilderness and calling people to “prepare the way of the Lord!”

Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach
repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace
to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet
with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and
reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
