November 29th - The Candle of Blessings

We are a people accustomed to waiting. Waiting in line. Waiting in traffic. Waiting for that call.

But are we waiting for the right things this December? Are we waiting for the Lord?

Advent is a season of waiting, but this year let it also be a season of giving.

Long ago, God saw his children had a great need for a Savior, but even now there’s need for Christ to come down into our lives.

But as we wait for Christ to be revealed to us again, let us not wait to do the good Christ has called us to do.

This day we light the Candle of Blessings, for as the Lord has blessed us with so many gifts, we are called to be blessings to others. Let us pray:

Lord God, reveal Yourself to us again. Help us this Advent season to focus on your son Jesus, who came not to be served, but to serve. Help us not to serve ourselves this December, but to serve you as we serve others. In Jesus name. Amen.
