The Season of Preparation

Advent’s a season of preparation, and we know that because there’s a lot of preparation going on right now. We’re preparing for Christmas. We’re shopping. We’re decorating. We’re wrapping. We’re baking. We’re cleaning. We’re planning. We know how to prepare. But how do we prepare for Advent? It’s not something I do. It’s something that’s done to me. And as we begin this season of Advent, we need to enter with the right frame of mind. In the season of craziness, Advent is a time to do the important things on the inside like listen more, to change more, and to be able to enter into the silence more, so I can change my heart to make more room for Christ, which is the real preparation.
