Are You Ready for Christ? Prepare for the Kingdom

Parents often have to warn their children of growing greedy at Christmas. The kids ask for too much – too many toys, to big of requests. And indeed, it can be a problem when children want too much of this world. But it is even a greater problem when people want too little of the next. So often, we ask too little of Christ. We want a little bit of earthly comfort. We want a few bauble and trinket type blessings. And he says “no” precisely because such requests demonstrate we don’t understand what he came to give to us – the peace and joy and comfort of an everlasting, unshakable kingdom. On this final Sunday before Christmas, we prepare for Emmanuel – “God with us” – by remembering the immense gift he comes to give.
