Abide with us – {Advent}

bethlehem

It’s that time of year where most workplaces or social groups are engaging in Secret Santas. Those fun occasions when you pick a present and have no idea whether you’d end up with a beautiful Christmas decoration or a christmas collar for a cat (that you do not have…), or even a bag of manure (which as it turned out was a good choice for the avid gardener). The true gift of Christmas fortunately has no such wildcard aspect to it!

In the Christmas Carol O Little Town of Bethlehem is the line “O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel.” The gift of Christmas is that God answered this prayer – He sent His Son, to abide with us. That we would have the gift of receiving Jesus in our hearts – abiding with us.

Let the truth that our Lord Emmanuel abides with us today take on a fresh and deeper revelation this Christmas.
