During Advent, we are watching and waiting. We hear the words of the prophet – “to us a child is born, to us a son is given” (Isaiah 9:6). We’re looking forward to Christmas time. It’s a time for celebration. The Lord has come. We hear the words of Jesus – “I will come back and take you to be with Me” (John 14:3). We’re looking to the future. It’s a great future. It’s God’s future – “we wait for the blessed hope— the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13). May our watching and waiting be filled with worshipping – “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15).
