Many of us have probably been preparing for the last couple of weeks. Shopping for presents, wrapping, decorating, and preparing the house have most likely been part of the "to do" list. We do this to celebrate the arrival of our Savior. We remember God's greatest gift to the world!
While we prepare for celebrating an event from thousands of years ago, we should also be preparing ourselves for the return of Jesus Christ. Instead of preparing our homes and buying gifts, we need to be sure we are preparing our hearts and minds to receive our Savior. We can welcome Jesus into our lives by accepting God's gift of forgiveness through His Son, then we can live as God has called us so we can say, "Come, Lord Jesus!"
Welcome Jesus into your life and prepare for His return!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help me to always welcome Him into my life. In His name I pray, amen.
