Jesus said to his disciples:
“Gird your loins and light your lamps and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding, ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
(Luke 12:35)

Advent reminds us to stay ready to serve our Master when he comes.  Do you feel ready for your Master to come and knock? Are you ready to immediately open your heart?  Are you excited? Anxious? Grateful?

He wants to give you something wonderful, and he’s trying to get your attention. With all the secular signs of Christmas in the streets and malls and on the Internet, it’s refreshing to walk into a church  Something wonderful also is about to happen to you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. As you ready for his joyful coming? How do you feel about Jesus coming to give his life for you? Coming to give his body and blood and everything he is to you? Coming to give you every spiritual gift you need to live a life of holiness? Do you feel worthy? Repentant? Joyful?

Do you have expectant faith that God will come to you and bring you the gift of himself? Are you ready for him?
