Advent Day 1

Rom 13:11-14
11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Advent is a time when Christ followers wake from their slumber.  It is the waiting for Christ to appear. Our salvation is so much closer now than when we first started following Christ. So Christmas is a good reminder to wake up, to come alive.  To clothe ourselves with the things of Jesus Christ
