Week 3: Trust and Joy
The readings from the third Sunday of Advent have a definite theme of joy. We are reminded to be joyful because the Lord is coming to save us. As we draw closer and closer to Christmas, it can be easy to get caught up in all the preparation and forget why we are preparing. Yes, Christmas is a beautiful time to celebrate with family and friends, and preparing your home, food, and presents for guests is important. But if your heart is not prepared to receive Christ, what's the point of all the preparation? We lose the true meaning of Christmas if we forget to be joyful. This week, make a conscious effort to be joyful, no matter where you are. Joy is one of the defining characteristics of a missionary disciple.
