Advent Calendar: Friday in the Ember Week of Advent

"Thou art near, O Lord, and all Thy ways are truth: I have known from the beginning concerning Thy testimonies, and Thou, art for ever. Blessed are the undefiled in the way; who walk in the law of the Lord. Glory be to the Father. Thou art near."    

 

Thou art near ....

Let us open our hearts in earnest anticipation of Him who comes to save us from our sins. As He comes in the humility of a child so let us turn to Him with the humility of children and in full confidence give ourselves entirely to Him. 

-Benjamin Bielinski
