Come Lord Jesus!






This holy season of Advent reminds us that "for us life is Christ."  Advent helps us to recognize anew that the deepest longing of our souls is for our loving God - the One who has come, the One who will come again, the One who comes each day to those who seek Him.
Our longing for God pales in comparison with God's infinite and unending longing for us.  That longing has existed from all eternity and reached new heights in the person of Jesus Christ.  We need to get in touch with the Advent longing inside of our hearts and allow God to do His work within us so that He may continue to reach young hearts through us.  
As we wait for his coming, let us remember that He has been quietly waiting for us all along.
