Advent - Love

And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
— Colossians 3:14

Today is the second Sunday of Advent.  The theme is love, which is so appropriate, for Love has come.

The birth of Christ as a baby in Bethlehem is near.  We can sense it in the air.  Something, or in this case, someone is coming.  There’s excitement all around and within us.

We prepare for his arrival.  We ready our hearts to worship the King.  We don’t want to miss him.  We want to be like the shepherds who ran to find Jesus, not like the innkeeper who had no room for him.  We don’t want to pass up the opportunity to be in the presence of Almighty God.  And so, we quiet ourselves…and worship the newborn King…born in a manger…born in our hearts.

Yes, Love has come!
