Hope: The Prophet’s Candle

Hope:  The Prophet's Candle

Long ago God’s people didn’t celebrate Christmas. They didn’t celebrate Advent. They were not ready to celebrate. They were still waiting.

When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden God made them a promise: he would send a perfect Son to fix all the brokenness that entered the world when Adam and Eve sinned. But God chose to show his glory by waiting to send that Son. Actually he waited for many years. But always God’s people trusted that God would fix the world that man broke.

This candle represents the hope of the prophets–those who taught the promise of the coming Son. Their hope shinned like a light even in the long and dark time as God’s people waited on God.
