As Christmas approaches, we begin to prepare for our traditions and celebrations. We may eagerly await decorating, time off from work, and family gatherings. The season is more than parties and gifts, it is about the hope we have through Jesus Christ. In all of our preparation, we should not lose sight of this hope and light!
We can prepare for Christmas during the season of advent as we wait, watch, and prepare for Jesus, but we shouldn't limit our preparations to one season or just to the physical parties and celebrations of the season. We should prepare our hearts to accept Jesus and this acceptance should go beyond a Christmas season and fill our entire lives. It is through God's plan and His Son, Jesus Christ, that we can continue to have hope and to watch in hope for the return of our Savior!
Prepare your heart and watch in hope for the Lord!
Thank You for the hope that You have provided in my life. Help me to prepare my heart for Jesus. Through Him I pray, amen.
