Second Sunday of Advent Part 1…

Second Week of Advent...

Second Week of Advent…

Advent is not a count down to presents under the tree or how many days of insanity are left to put presents under the tree…

Though many in the world view it as that…

No, Advent should be a time of PREPARING…

Preparing what, and what are we preparing for?

Are you ready for this?

Do I have your full attention?

Our death to this wayward life and the meeting of Our Creator.

St. Paul tells us:

For he who has died is freed from sin…if we have died with Christ [our baptism] we believe that we shall also live with Him… The death He died, He died to sin, once and for all, but the life He lives, He lives to God.

So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. ~Romans 6:7, 8, 10-11

 So to echo the words of the prophet Isaiah:

In the wilderness [have not humanity’s heart gone cold and become a barren wasteland of excuses – a wilderness of nothing?], prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God; every valley lifted up, every mountain and hill made low.

And the Glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

~Isaiah 40:3-4, 5
