“I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him!””
Mark 13:37 NLT
Expect to see Jesus as you go about your daily activities and you will find Jesus. God wants us to be active watchers, aware of the people he puts in our paths, some to help, some to provide assistance, some to hug, some to confront, and all so we can pray.
Watch! Advent is a time to dust off our spiritual spectacles.
Expect to have opportunities to share the Love of Christ, his Peace and you will find an angel on a tree, a teacher who needs supplies for a classroom, a pastor who needs encouragement, a missionary in the field, a co-worker who is grieving or struggling to make ends meet.
Watch! Advent is a time to use the resources God has given us to help others.
Expect blessings, abundance, and good will [not materially, but mentally and spiritually] as you communicate the love of Christ to those who follow other faiths, those who are agnostic or atheist, those who are running from God, or trying to remake God into Santa Claus.
Watch! Advent is a time to Proclaim the Gospel, GOOD NEWS! GOOD NEWS!
Watch always not just at Advent, continue to be faithful. The Lord is Coming, Emmanuel, God with us!
