We have entered the season of Advent. This is a time of year that I love and look forward to with anticipation … A time of family and friends … A time of gathering and fellowship … A time of celebration and a time of expectation.

I hear the words “Come and Hear” this Advent season.

Noise … honking horns, shouting voices, clanging, chatter, and the internal noise of our own minds … this time of year can be full of distracting sounds. A cacophony of dizzying sound that pulls us away from the sound of God’s voice. At this time, more than any other time, the increased noise of the Christmas holiday season can and does distract us from the sound that matters most … the voice of our Heavenly Father!

There is a gift God wants to share during this Advent Season … The whispered words from His heart … there are words He wants you to hear this season that are meant just for you … Come and hear this advent season. Quiet the noise … who is God trying to speak through this Advent season … is it older woman in the grocery store line, is it the homeless person you walk past on the city street, is it the teenager dressed in black with piercings and colored hair, is it the neighbor that waves to you everyday … yes, God uses the most unlikely people to speak to you … He used the shepherds on that amazing night thousands of years ago when Christ was born to spread the news of the Messiah’s birth … Come and hear this Advent Season … don’t miss God’s heart message … quiet the noise … Come and hear!

“When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.”  Luke 2

We have entered the season of Advent. This is a time of year that I love and look forward to with anticipation … A time of family and friends … A time of gathering and fellowship … A time of celebration and a time of expectation.

Advent … “the expectant waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus”; Latin, meaning “coming” … expectant, waiting, coming. Each of these words conjures up a sense that something big is about to happen. This Advent I will write a few thoughts and publish them here on what, to me, Advent is speaking in this season.

I hear the words “Come and See” this Advent season. God in His infinite love and mercy has issued an invitation to “Come and See.” This isn’t the first time He has spoken these words. Throughout the scriptures we read this invitation. Some have accepted His invitation, others have not. This year, in 2015 Advent, God is yet again, issuing the invitation to “Come and See.” Will you accept His invitation? It will look differently from person to person, but will you “Come and See?” Will you “Come and See” His miracle power? Will you “Come and See” Him heal the brokenness within you? Will you “Come and See” God breathe life and restoration into those things that are withering and dead? Will you “Come and See” the hand of God reach out to you and touch you, lift you up and set you into the place of promise? Will you “Come and See” the babe in the manger and know that this is where Hope has been birthed? Will you “Come and See” the peace of God this Advent 2015?

Remove the blindness of culture, remove the blindness of hate, remove the blindness of apathy from your eyes and in this Advent season … expectantly and with anticipation,“Come and See.”

“He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

~ John 1:39a ~
