The Second Sunday in Advent 2012

Micah 5:2-4 (NIV)

2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” 3 Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites. 4 He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth.

Lord, sometimes we think we are too small or too insignificant to make a difference. Yet You chose Bethlehem, a small, insignificant town to be the birthplace of our Lord. Indwell us with Your Holy Spirit and empower us to do great things for Your glory. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
