It Has Begun...
Advent is here.
The waiting has begun. The short days and dark nights remind us of the darkness the world lay in before Christ came.
Creation was groaning for its Savior.
These weeks leading up to Christmas tell the Christmas story. It's cold. It's dark. We need the Light.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it....The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. John 1:1-5, 9
We remember that wait. We internalize it as best as we can. And we rejoice in the hope that comes in knowing that He did come. He did make a way for our salvation through His death on the cross.
It's time to remember. It's time to wait with great expectation. Soon enough, it will be time to celebrate.
