As I read this passage, the final phrase catches my attention, “I see him, though not now; I behold him, though not near. A star shall advance from Jacob, and a staff shall rise from Israel.” These lines remind me of the waiting and preparation for Christ’s nativity we Christians participate in during the Advent season. We can see Christ in the world around us and we believe in His presence in heaven, but He may seem far away. During Advent we celebrate His divine presence on earth with us, near to us in the celebration of His nativity. Just as the star guided the Magi to the newborn leader of the people of Israel, the light that is Christ will lead us to the love and happiness we will find in God.
