Christmas means so much to us because the child born in Bethlehem is the same Jesus who is going to go to the cross, who will bear our sins, who will free us from sin and death.
The urgency of God's message is that God desires to come to us today.
What we are celebrating in Advent is the second coming of the Lord. We are preparing our hearts and minds because we want to be close to the Lord.
The Lord is capable of giving us what we need. Today, let us make the same act of faith that Bartimaeus did.
God desires that we experience his love, delight, and joy in us every moment. He loves us where we are, as we are.
“Let us be resolved to make ourselves available to the Lord.”
