Thought of the Day December 9, 2019 Prepare the way of the Lord

By 3:30 PM

As we move into the second week of Advent, are we still in the spirit of Advent? Is our focus on the celebration of the coming of the Lord or on a family holiday? If it is the former, then what are we doing to be more open to his coming in the present moment? If we sometimes find ourselves moving from one focus to the other, it may help us to pray this prayer at different times during the day: "Come, Lord Jesus, come". It is so easy to forget whose birthday it is and why he came. Without a conscious effort, it will be easy for us to arrive at Christmas and find that we are not prepare to welcome his now coming into our lives. We forgot to heed the prophetic call of John the Baptist: "Prepare the way of the Lord."
