Eleventh Day of Advent
O God Who Comes,
We praise you that because you are love, you show us in all you do, but especially in what you have done and continue to do in Jesus Christ, what love is.
We praise you for showing us that love is obedience.
We praise you for showing us through the coming of Jesus to the world that because your Son loved you he wanted nothing other than to know and to do your will no matter what the personal cost.
Grant that our love for you will be characterized by an ever increasing desire to know and to do your will and to be obedient to you in all things, regardless of where such obedience leads us.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
