Advent is a period that last for four (4) weeks. It prepares us for the coming of Our Saviour Jesus Christ! It is a free gift for all of us to prepare for the coming of the Messiah.
“…A voice cries in the wilderness…prepare the way for the Lord; make His paths straight” Mk. 1:3.
One day a certain Christian attended Mass for his or her first time at the outstation and then the celebrant preached about the Advent. When he or she reached his or her home, the following day he woke up very early and began cutting down the banana plantation making a big path towards his house. Those passing by stood in amazement and wondered! Why he was destroying the plantation? They asked and he said; I am preparing the way for the Lord to my house.
They laughed at him…what the pastor talked about meant the house of your heart, therefore, there is a need to prepare our hearts for the coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ! That He, Jesus should find us ready… how prepared are we?
