How to Prepare for Jesus' Arrival

Posted by bethlehemlutheran on December 27, 2011 at 11:45 AM

A central theme of Advent is preparation.

We prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birthday by thinking about what the world was like before he came to earth as a baby and, as an adult, died to save us, and what it would be like now, if he hadn’t.

We prepare our hearts to receive him in the present by accepting his great gift of salvation and, with it, freedom from the power of sin in our lives.

We prepare for his return to earth in bodily form by living faithful lives, so that, if he should return today, he will find us doing what we have been called to do.

Happy Advent,
Mary
