Proverbs 8:12-30

“They’re here!” They could hear her shout through the heavy front door. The lock turned and the door opened. Judith’s granddaughter threw herself in her arms as she and husband walked into the house. This was truly a joyous reunion after months apart.

During the season of Advent, we wait expectantly for the coming of our Lord. God, who created the world and rules over all, would come to live among us. The Word made flesh, Jesus, comes to bring salvation and peace to all. We declare to the world, “He’s here!”

Their visit with family didn’t last long. After several days of playing, talking, and snuggling together, the time came for them to fly home. They would not be together again for many months. Telephone and email communication would have to satisfy them for the time being.

With Jesus, our time together has no time limits. He assured His disciples, “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). The Holy Spirit has come and we are called and privileged to delight in God’s presence day after day.
