╬Advent is a time of waiting, a time of intensified darkness when we, aware of our desperate need for a Savior, cry out, “Come, Emmanuel!” In your own celebrations of this Christmas season, with courage, take time to look into the intensifying darkness. On bended knee and with an open heart, cry “Come, Emmanuel.”

╬John’s gospel tells us that “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (Jo 1:5). Even as we acknowledge the intensifying darkness, this Advent we also rejoice that the Light shines brightly! It is a tension that we live in until Christ comes again. Give thanks for the Light and pray, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus.”
