Lately I’ve been reading in Romans about how creation groans in anticipation of Christ’s second coming, how we who are in Christ also anticipate this glorious event also – the redemption of our earthly bodies.
It was the same for those who waited thousands of years ago for the Messiah. Little did they know he would arrive as a mere Babe.
Yet they waited then…and we wait now. We count down the days until Christmas, some of us for presents and celebrations, but for some of us so much more than that. We wait for the day that we celebrate His birth, the arrival of a thousands year old Promise, the arrival of our Peace.
It’s as if the coming joy is nearly tangible in the air. Can you feel it? Or am I just crazy?
As we wait expectantly, Betsy reminds us to “behold Jesus,” to expect Him, to listen carefully for the Father’s voice. Otherwise we might miss the message! Stop by and read the rest of her story below.
As you make your Christmas preparations in the coming weeks,
Leave room for Christ.
