Christ’s Birth: Immanuel !

I want a fresh Advent every day of this season. 

I do not want to commemorate a historical event. I do not want to get swept away by the commercial blitz. I do not want one short Christmas Eve service or children’s program or holiday concert to be the only occasion to think about a birth that changed my life and my hopes.

I want Him to come into my life now, today, every day, alive and powerful. I want the Spirit to birth new things in me.

And the good news is, that is exactly what Jesus said would happen!

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.” 
   (
John 14:23)

What hope, comfort, encouragement — and awe — there is in this promise: The Father, the Son, and the Spirit will come and make their home with each child of God.

For those who long to know the Father better, this promise alone is enough to dwell upon today ….

“…we will come and make our home with each of them.”

Come, Father, Jesus, Spirit into all of my days.
