Have you ever had longing for someone or something desperately? Our priorities changes when this yearning desire take control over our thoughts and minds. whatever we do, where ever we go we think about  this yearning desire.

Today is the first day of  Advent, which is the season for celebrating the birth of Jesus and preparing second coming of Jesus. Advent is the first day of the year in the Christian church calendar not like the calendar we use everyday.  Most people would think Christmas is the first day of the christian church calendar, but the advent is the first day. There is a very important reason for this. The birth of Jesus Christ had already been prophesied and anticipated before his birth.  Advent remind us to focus on Jesus rather than our shopping list, party, or event.

Advent begins today,  four weeks before the Christmas.  We need to prepare our heart and mind for  the birth of Jesus as we put away our sin, greed,  jealousy, hate, anger and resentment.  It would not be easy to prepare our heart and mind to be pure and honest for receiving true meaning of Christmas because we are so easily become distracted with Christmas gift, party or programs rather than focusing on what true meaning of the Christmas.  Preparing our heart, attitude of our mind, and life for true meaning of Christmas is the purpose of the four weeks of the special season. 

How can we prepare for this special season? The answer is focusing on essential matters. In order to do that, we need to remove nonessential matters from our thoughts and focus on only Jesus Christ.
Why did Jesus have to come to the world? What made Him come to us and this world from the heaven?  I hope everyone find the answer during this Advent. Let's examine and make our heart and mind pure and honest so we can be a gift as Jesus did to the world.

Let us pray that we all have true hope as we light up the first candle in the advent, today.
