God is preparing The Way. He is an active God who loves and wants to be loved. He is a God that is near and among us. Being made in His image, He finds favor with us. And as the first Christians, often called the followers of “The Way,” glorified Him through living their lives like Christ, how will we, today, glorify Him? As God prepared the way for Jesus to enter into this world, and as we anticipate this birth, may you prepare the way for others to experience Christ and His love for them this Christmas season.
