Reading: Galatians 4: 4-7 (Click to read text)
Reflection: It's here. The end of our Advent journey. It's Christmas Eve. I was thinking just the other day that I think Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the year. I like Christmas Day, but the events of the day before just resonate with me. Gathering with family in anticipation, attending church, and finalizing plans for the big day give me a heart filled with hope, love, and joy.
It might seem strange to read a passage from Galatians on Christmas Eve. This is one of the texts assigned to this coming Sunday, the first Sunday of Christmas. And it reminds us that Jesus came right when God wanted him to. Our passage opens with these words: "But when the fullness of time had come, God sent His son...."
And now, it is time to celebrate that coming. As you gather with family in anticipation, attend church, and finalize plans today, may you have a heart filled with hope, love, and joy. Jesus is coming! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
