Advent

By: 
PMC Chaplain Chris Gilley

In these days it seems everyone is always in a hurry.

 

The old timers say it seems as if time is speeding up. How ironic, we have technology to help us decrease the amount of time things take but it seems we still have less time today than we had yesterday.

 

Even with all the help we find ourselves waiting. It may be for an elevator, an appointment or just waiting in line at the grocery store.

 

This week begins a season of waiting and watching — Advent. Preparation and expectation for the celebration of Jesus' birth and his return.

 

We need to take heed of Jesus' words to His disciples, "Watch! Be alert! For you don't know when the time is coming. (Mark 13:33 CSB)."

 

As we celebrate the advent season, lets us not only focus our attention on the birth of our savior, but also continue to watch and wait on his return as King.
