Eleventh Day of Advent
Thank you that Jesus came to us in humility.
Thank you that Jesus will come to us in glory.
Thank you that Jesus comes to us in love.
Let our lives reflect the fact of his presence with us; let us become more and more permeated with his love that shows itself in service and in sacrifice.
As we celebrate the past and anticipate the future, help us to live fully in the present; help us, as we look back to the birth of Jesus and as we look forward to his return, to live in light of his presence with us here and now.
Make and keep us open to whatever new ways Jesus needs and wants to come to us today.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
