Fall on your knees...oh hear the angel's voices...
These are the words that came to my mind upon the prompt adore.
It is Advent....in a few days it will be Christmas...
This is the time, given to us by the church, to prepare ourselves for the birth of our Lord. To prepare ourselves to adore and glorify him. This is the time given to us by the media and the businesses to prepare to stress out and spend lots of money. I don't adore that and I don't know why we allow them to get in the way of our adoration of our Lord, Jesus Christ, who is born to us next week to redeem each and every one of us. You know why?? Because He adores us! He loves us more than we can ever imagine. I a few short months we will celebrate just how much He loves us as we watch Him die for us upon that cross.
That, my friends, is the real reason we celebrate His birth. A birth that would mean nothing if not for the death that is to follow.
