Homily for Advent 4

Reredos at Hope Lutheran, St. Louis, MO
In the Gospel reading for Advent 4 (LSB One-Year) we hear the priests and Levites ask John the Baptist, "Who are you?" It's a fitting question for Advent, especially as we prepare to celebrate Who our Savior is--that is, the Word made flesh. John's answer is instructive to us Christians: "I am not the Christ." Who are you, Christian? Certainly not the Christ! But there is a Christ, and He has come for you. So, continuing the theme from last week, yesterday's homily focused on "Who Are You? Part II."
