If you haven't watched Matt's sermon last week on the many comings of Christ, please tune in here...
I loved how he challenged us to stop worrying about what will happen at the end of time, and welcome him still now in the middle of time. Repent! And receive him today. He is coming to us in so many ways. And our job is not to figure out something in the future, but to pay attention right now, and watch for him.
I came across a beautiful little sentence earlier this week that complements this reality so well.
"Receiving means to keep ourselves carefully tuned in, sensitive to the music of Eternity. We can never adore enough."
-- Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941)
May we all receive what Christ has to give this Advent...May we be carefully tuned in to the music He's playing...O come, let us adore Him!
p.s. - remember to bring donations for the Moldovan missionaries on Sunday.
And if you missed last week's very full issue about Matthew 25 and George MacDonald, read it here.
