Ro 13:11 And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

Today is the first day of the Advent season.  Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of God’s Son, Jesus Christ.  He has already come on this earth in the form of a baby.  We must now prepare for His coming back for His Bride – His Church – those who have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior and walk in His ways.  As humans we tend to slumber from our mission – to prepare for the coming of Christ.  Advent reminds us to prepare – our hearts and our minds.  We must also help to prepare those around us.  May we slow down during this season of Advent and really celebrate both His having come to show us God’s love and prepare for His coming back for us.
