Saturday after the Second Sunday in Advent 2012

Psalm 50:3-6 (NIV)

3 Our God comes and will not be silent;

a fire devours before him,

and around him a tempest rages.

4 He summons the heavens above,

and the earth, that he may judge his people:

5 “Gather to me this consecrated people,

who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”

6 And the heavens proclaim his righteousness,

for he is a God of justice.

Lord, we know You are a God of justice, and we are sinful and unworthy. If You judge us as we deserve, we will receive everlasting punishment. But not only are You a God of justice, but You are a God of mercy and grace. Thank You for sending Jesus to take the punishment that we justly deserve. Thank You for showing mercy and grace and love to us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
