Jesus knew it was time for His advent, time to come on stage and begin His public ministry, when John was put in prison. Sin always leaves a hole in life, it sucks the oxygen out of the room. Sin requires a response, or the darkness deepens. So Jesus calls for repentance, as John did. His intention in coming is to deal with our darkness, with our sin. So, on this 3rd Sunday of Advent, we remember again, that we have to focus on our king’s agenda. He intends to deal with your sin when He comes, so you deal with it now. When the king’s messenger announces the king will be with you for dinner tomorrow night, there are preparations to make. There is much to do.
