18. December 2016
Advent 4
Philippians 4:5; John 1:19-28

Summary: When people are confident in possessing something, they have no need to convince others. Only the uneasy and uncertain painfully work to establish recognition and assurance. “Reasonableness,” as used in our Epistle, means the quiet confidence of being God’s child who possesses God’s riches and truth and lives in this confidence, awaiting the promised fulfillment.
