Thought of the Day December 4, 2023 He is coming.

By 11:26 AM

"The Lord is coming, always coming. When you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you will recognize him at any moment of your life. Life is Advent; life is recognizing the coming of the Lord." Henri Nouwen

As we begin this Advent season of expectation, are we expecting Jesus to come in a fresh new way in our lives in the present moment? If not, we will be oblivious of his coming, as were the people of his own day. If we are, we will experience his coming as the Shepherds did. Jesus came, comes and will come again. His first coming in time was to prepare us for his continual coming in each age, as we await his final coming in glory. It is awaiting and being attentive to his coming in the present moment that enables us to be ready for that final coming. As Jesus said: "Be watchful! Be alert! Stay awake." Come, Lord Jesus. Let me be attentive to your coming.
