This week we light the candle for peace. in Isaiah at chapter 40, verse 3 we read ‘prepare ye the way of the lord.’ The message of advent is to be prepared for Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, into the world, into our homes and into our hearts. Before we can make a place for Christ in our lives we need to consider just where we stand in relation to god.
We need to think deeply about the faith which we proclaim, does it guide us in the way we life our daily lives?
Are we moved at the plight of the homeless, or the poor and those who are sick and those who are without faith ?.
Christians are constantly challenged by the pressures of daily life.
In our prayers we need to seek guidance on what we should do to live our faith. We have to translate our faith into action, following the example of Christ in ministering to those who are in need. By doing this we will be well prepared for Christ’s coming.
