Second Week of Advent
Dec 08, 2008 by Howard Baker | 0 Comments
Jesus comes back into the world when we offer him a dwelling place in our hearts,
When we accept him in his law of love,
When we do what Mary did and conceive Jesus and carry him in us,
So that he is able to become the heart of our life.
Then he will love the heavenly Father with out whole heart, with our whole soul, and with our whole strength.
Then his love and goodness and his sympathy for all men and women will shine out into the world like a light through us.
Then he will smile through our eyes and help with our hands and once again live his redeeming life of the Gospel.
Then we shall be the doors, the tens and hundreds of thousands of doors,
Through which he, the Lord, the Prince of Peace, God-with-us, will enter his world, his kingdom.
