Advent Love

Daily reading: Luke 1:5-13, 57-80
Sunday December 20, 2015

Focus passage: When the time came for Elizabeth to have her child, she gave birth to a boy. Luke 1:57

Today is the fourth Sunday of Advent.  So far we have explored the Advent themes of hope, peace and joy and today we explore love.
Today we finally get to a story about a baby.   I love babies.  I love holding them, and smelling their new baby smell.  I love the sounds they make, even the sound of their cry.  

There is something about babies and the hope we have for their lives. I love the baby dedications we have in worship when we along with the parents promise to love and raise the child in the faith and we remember God’s blessing on their life.   There is such hopeful expectation and love in those moments.

May we wait in hopeful expectation for the love of God to be born anew in our lives!

Prayer: Come Lord Jesus, be born anew in my life today.  Amen.
