This month we find ourselves in the uneasy time of Advent waiting. Waiting for the glory of Christmas and the celebration of the birth of Jesus. For some the story is unbelievable. For others there is a rational basis for the belief that the world’s most famous event is indeed true, not fantasy. It’s an embrace that in Christ their only hope, their only peace is found. In him the dawn of redeeming grace has arrived; the world turned upside down. As we engage this season, know that God is not an idea, but a person who knows your ordinary life, and who still adores you. Now the question is: have you taken the time to know and fall in love with Him?
