The four weeks before Christmas mark the season of Advent, a time of preparation for the birth of Christ. The first Sunday we focus on the quality of faith. Imagine the faith Mary and Joseph must have had, to go against their religious laws and cultural rules to make a home for the precious child that God was entrusting to them. Charles Fillmore wrote that faith is “spiritual assurance; the power to do the seemingly impossible.” What are we being called to do that requires a deepening of our faith?
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:7
Affirmation: The power of Faith leads to my greater spiritual awareness… and I am blessed.
