The Coming Christ (5)
        The wisemen saw the stars some years ahead of time and prepared their long journey in search for it. They make all sorts of preparation for their journey so that they will not be caught off-hand without provision or resources. They have thoroughly considered their risk and finally found it worth while in so doing. They set off not knowing where to go and how long was the journey.

        The shepherds in the field were astonished when they were visited by angels with good tidings. They did not make long preparation but they did make short and bold preparation. They did believed the angels and visited the baby Jesus in the manger.

The second most important opportunity is the investment of time. Just as in the saying:

"A little at a time, a mountain be in time"

though we do not know when Jesus is coming back, we should all the more get prepared day by day. Character building takes time so is faith building. In the end, it is the word of their testimony and the blood of the Lamb that matters (Rev 12 :11). No true testimony can be achieved in a short span of time. Testimony comes from experience. It took 30 years of experience before Jesus entered into ministry. In other words, it took 30 years to build His faith. It is that faith that can move mountains. Letís build our faith by serving Him diligently and faithfully. Let us make preparation like the wisemen but expect to be chosen like the shepherds.

Discuss: Do you have any testimony that can overcome the evil one? How to develop one?
 
Collect - Advent 4
Heavenly Father, who chose the Virgin Mary, full of grace, to be the mother of our Lord and Saviour: fill us with Your grace, that in all things we may accept Your holy will and with her rejoice in Your salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
