POST-CAMP MORNING WATCH
FIRST DAY OF ADVENT
PREPARE YE THE WAY OF THE LORD!
In the days before Jesus’ birth, God sent another to first prepare the way--John the
Baptist. So, too, we need to prepare the way for Jesus’ birth in our lives today.
Christmas is coming! How great it would be if we could really experience His Birth again
within our hearts!
A baby is to be born! A very special Baby! What can we give Him?
What special gift could possibly be good enough?
Jesus gave us just one commandment: “Love one another”.
He also told us that we should forgive our neighbors.(70 times 7!)
In these days before Christmas--this Advent time-- perhaps the greatest gift we could give
Him would be to honor those teachings. And in the process, blessedly, we would also give
a great gift to ourselves! The gift of Love and freedom from bitterness!
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!-
Get ready for His coming by giving up on bitterness toward someone who has “done you wrong.”
Forgiveness is as much for our own sake as for the one we are forgiving.
There can be no true Love without first forgiveness and He commanded us to
“Love one another!”.
Prepare for Christmas this December by giving Jesus the greatest birthday present possible.
( “It is not possible to say you love God if you hate your neighbor”)
Love prepares the way!
Be prepared for the best Christmas ever!
