“Let us then throw off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us conduct ourselves properly as in the day…!”
St. Paul is not messing around. There is urgency in his words. He is calling us to take an honest look at ourselves and to let go of that which is causing us to sin…orgies, drunkenness, promiscuity, lust, rivalry, jealousy…whatever it is, we are encouraged to pray for the grace to let go of that and to put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am so excited that we are entering into Advent, because it serves as a shock to the spiritual system of our lives. It calls for an honest look into our souls. The season calls us to slow down and focus on what really matters. We know this. But do we ever do this? And how do we do this? I thought you’d never ask!
This Advent, we are offering a myriad of ways to throw off darkness and put on the armor of light. Take time to seriously pray with the Advent schedule. Let each opportunity be a time to shout out “Come Lord Jesus!” Every prayer this Advent can be an invitation for Jesus to come into your life.
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ this Season of Advent!
