Advent is a season of hope. This is a season of rekindling the hope that is in our hearts, which at often times flickers in the dark of night. Advent is a time of looking forward to the promise of Jesus' return in glory. It is also the season of celebrating His first coming as a baby boy, wrapped in swaddling clothes, born of a virgin.
Today, as we begin this season of Advent, let us fix our gaze upon Jesus, the meek, the humble, the lowly child born in a manager.
