Two Sundays of Advent have already gone. We heading in to the third Sunday (11th December). People all around the world are engaging in their daily Advent readings. This is wonderful.
However, we need to do more. We actually need to redeem Advent. This season of Advent should be an adventure, with the Holy Spirit as our guide. As we read and reflect on Christ and what his comings–first coming and then second coming–we should be moved by the Spirit to not only adore and admire him but to earnestly desire to like Jesus, for his glory and the sake of the world. This is how we redeem Advent. Without that becoming, Advent 2016 would have been just a stroll–not an exciting adventure.
