As we approach this Christmas season may we ponder the following:
THE SEASON of Advent means there is something on the horizon the likes of which we have never seen before…
What is possible is to not see it, to miss it, to turn just as it brushes past you. And you begin to grasp what it was you missed, like Moses in the cleft of the rock, watching God’s [back] fade in the distance.
So stay. Sit. Linger. Rest. Ponder. Wait. Behold. Wonder. There will be time enough for running. For rushing. For worrying. For pushing. For now, stay.
Wait. Something is on the horizon.
IT WAS NOT suddenly and unannounced that Jesus came into the world. He came into a world that had been prepared for him. The whole Old Testament is the story of a special preparation…
Only when all was ready, only in the fullness of his time, did Jesus come.
Come Lord Jesus…. We await the celebration of your birth!
