Christ is the Savior where we need him not where we want him. Advent 3 sermon 2017, John 1;6-8, 19-28

John the Baptist says of Jesus Christ, “Among you stands one whom you do not know…I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal.” Not only do we not know this One as he stands among us, we don’t want to know, because Christ Jesus has embedded  himself in our miserable condition. He resides with us in this world, in our weakness, poverty & humiliation, not in our strength, health, beauty, and power. That is where the devil meets us. But Christ is the Savior where we need him not where we want him. He is the shining light that illuminates the dark corners of our hopelessness.
