Devotion for Saturday after the Third Sunday in Advent

“Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the Lord.

~ Malachi 3:1-3

The first time Jesus came to earth, He came as a helpless baby. When He returns, He will come in all His power and majesty, and “who can endure the day…?” If we were judged by our own thoughts, words, and deeds, we would all be consigned to Hell. Praise be to God that we are righteousness if we love Jesus because He took our sins upon Himself. When He comes again to judge the world, He will see His righteousness in us.

Thank You, Lord, that You see me as righteous because You see Jesus’s righteousness when You look at me. In His name. Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.
