Advent – Part 2
So the 1st human with whom the Father shared the secret of the long anticipated coming of the Savior was the young girl who was to be his mother –Mary! Can you imagine her Joy, her concerns, her questions, her faith?
Joy –the Messiah is now coming! And God has chosen me to bring Him into the world!
Concern –what will that mean for me –for a virgin to be with child –the risk of death overshadowing that joy.
Questions –how will this come to be? How can a virgin give birth?
Faith –if God said it, let it be -for it will be if He said it!
Do we have Joy in anticipating the Celebration of Jesus’ birth? Do we daily let that Joy of the reality that Christ is Come fill every part of our hearts & lives? He is the Reason for the Season! He is the Reason for All Joy! He is Unspeakable Joy! And when we have Him in our lives every day can be filled with Him –with Unspeakable Joy! After all He did say, “I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be in you joy, and that your joy may be FULL!” (John 15:11).
