A reflection from the Daily Advent Devotional for Women Day 24…
Daily Advent Devotional for Women Day 24
The month of waiting is about to be over in a few short hours. We will celebrate the birth of Christ. God made Man to save man. Can you even believe it? Could you even imagine it?
The Creator…becoming like the created…to save the created! That makes no sense, does it?
But neither does joy in the midst of sorrow, peace in the midst of trials, and comfort in the midst of suffering. But our God does not have to make sense to the world…although He created this world, it does not know Him.
If this world knew Jesus, Christmas would only be beginning tomorrow. After the gifts were opened, the turkey eaten and the trash carried out to the curb…the season of Christmas would just be starting.
Let’s celebrate Christmas as a season, not just a day.
The preparations of Advent are past, now is the time for rejoicing, and our baby Savior deserves more than one day, don’t you think? Traditionally the Church has celebrated the birth of Jesus through at least the Epiphany on January 6. But the season of Epiphany, which begins on the Eve of the Epiphany, is not over until the end of the Octave of Epiphany, which lasts for eight days, so not until January 13.
The time is at hand. Continue to prepare the way of the Lord!
