Look for Christ – he is coming!
Seek his arrival,
search for his presence.
God is entering the world,
entering this world of pain and sorrow,
entering to dwell among us,
as one of us.
He will know our sorrow.
He will see our pain.
He will embrace humanity
while retaining divinity.
But he comes into our world,
not as an observer,
but as a transformer.
He comes to begin the process of healing old wounds,
reconciling broken relationships,
filling emptiness and quenching the fires of despair.
He comes not to watch us suffer,
but to transform our suffering into Glory.
And so we wait,
looking forward with eager anticipation
to the arrival of Christ,
the anointed one,
who brings life and hope,
peace and joy,
a reign and kingdom without end.
