I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
~ Psalm 2:7
Muslims—and probably many other people—believe Jesus was a great prophet but not the Son of God. Today’s passage tells us that God is the Father, and He has a Son. We now know that Son to be Jesus Christ, the Messiah, our Lord and Savior, the One for whom we wait during Advent.
Father God, it’s hard for me to understand the Trinity—how You, the Son, and the Holy Spirits are three persons in one being. But as far back as the Psalms, You were telling us about Jesus—that You had begotten Him. And Jesus told us about the Holy Spirit. You sent the Son to earth before, and I know You will send Him again—this time in glory. I thank You and praise You for sending Jesus to restore my relationship with You by paying for my sins and for the Holy Spirit to guide me. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
