#Deliver ~ the #AdventWord of the day
In the midst of the busy-ness of Advent, it is important to remember that God is at work in the
world about us. God is the one who will, ultimately, deliver us. It is not our weak and paltry
work that gets us to the land of promise. God is the one who delivered the Israelites from Egypt,
and God will deliver us. Of course, we have work to do along the way, to join in the great effort.
We are reminded that it is God, of course, who is at the center of the work of the Incarnation,
and it is God, in Christ, who is born into this very world, so that we may be delivered from sin,
