Advent: Awakening

Come Awake! Come Awake…

“We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade
The presence of God.
The world is crowded with Him.
He walks everywhere incognito.
And the incognito is not always hard to
Penetrate.
The real labor is to attend.
In fact, to come awake.
Still more, to remain awake”.
(Letters to Malcom by C.S. Lewis)

“Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires” (Rom 13:10-14).

“Oh God and Father, I repent of my sinful preoccupation with visible things. The world has been too much with me. You have been here and I knew it not. I have been blind to your presence. Open my eyes that I may behold You in and around me. For Christ’s sake, I amen” (The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer).
