During Advent, Christians around the world prepare for the coming of the Christ-child, our savior Jesus Christ. For me this is easy to do on Sunday morning during worship. As determined as I might be to maintain a heart that longs for Immanuel, I get distracted after worship and soon my focus turns to other things... shopping, pleasing others, parties, to-do lists, decorations, cards, lights, etc.

Our living Lord offers to each of us HOPE, PEACE, JOY, and LOVE. This year, I have asked folks from the congregation to reflect on one of these four words. My prayer is that through this devotional, we may keep our focus a bit longer on these gracious gifts that the Christ-child offers to us at all times.

May each of us prepare to celebrate the King of Kings!
