18th December 2018 Tuesday 3rd Week of Advent
Jeremiah 23:5-8, Matthew 1:18-25
Why do we celebrate Christmas? It is because we believe that the God we worship, adore, love and serve is a God who is never far from any of us. God is present. We can find Him in every success, every failure, every hurt, every grief, every anger and every joy. We can find Him in every person and in our very own lives.
The world is now in full swing celebrating Christmas with Santa Claus, reindeers, last minute shopping. As Christians, can we prepare for Christmas differently?
Question for reflection:
1) In this time of prayer, am I fully present for God who is present for me?
