Second Week of Advent- December 4, 2016

Happy Sunday!

Are you ready for Christ's arrival?  This weekend we hear from John the Baptist who is the friend of the Bridegroom, Jesus!  JBap came into this world born of Elizabeth and Zachariah in anything but a routine pregnancy.  God had a plan for this mature couple.  They would parent a prophet of hope who spoke the truth even when it cost him his head on a platter.  John kicked for joy in his mother's womb when he met Christ carried in Mary's womb.  He lived that Christ may increase.  Where has Christ increased in our lives?  Are we loving more? Forgiving more? Seeking more? Reaching out more?  Or is it a routine practice of the faith?  Have our days lost the luster of the treasure of the faith?  When a couple engages to marry the hope is radiant and love abounds!  How has Sunday in this waiting season of Advent prepared you to welcome the one who  will enter of low estate, in swaddling cloth and with the parents who had no room but an animal manger?  In the midst of poverty God's glory is born!  In the desert from the mouth of John repentance is called! We are not worthy to unfasten his sandal yet he raises us up to look at him face to face.  This happens in prayer.  Sunday is a time for prayer.  Prayers for all visitors to www.reclaimsunday.net.

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
