Psalm 146, 147 
Amos 1:1-5, 13-2:8 
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 
Matthew 25.1–13 

The beginning of Advent is upon us; a time when we welcome Christ to come into our hearts again to show us the way of God’s Love and Hope, when Christ is born anew into our world. As Christians we celebrate the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus each passing year. We live, work and reflect on God’s world and what God is asking of us. 
Amos saw the wrath of God to come, the psalmist proclaims Praise for God, Paul in his message to the Thessalonians reminds us that God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Gospel of Luke we are reminded yet again not to put our trust in things that perish. 
For me, God is asking me to Love, to Give generously, and to See the Divine Light in all of life. Jesus came into the world to show me just that. Every season is a time of celebration, joy, love and hope, but Advent calls me each year to reflect on what has been, to wake up to what is, and to hope for Jesus to come into my heart in a new way so I can proclaim God’s love. 
What is God asking of you? Advent Blessings,
