St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 22

"They will call him Emmanuel, 'God with us'." (Matthew 1: 23)

During Advent the sense of expectation grows, heightened by the readings from the Old Testament which anticipate the birth of a Saviour. We are told that God delivers on his promise of justice by coming among us. As we wait for the birth of Christ, are we waiting expectantly, in hope, preparing a place for Emmanuel in our hearts?

Lord, you have promised to be with us on our journey of faith. Teach us to share a message of hope for a troubled world. Amen.
