We are faced with this question in the Gospel of Matthew(11.2-11) as we await the coming of Christ during this season of Advent.
Perhaps we wonder at times, “Are you the one..” Jesus? As John the Baptist sends his disciples with this question. Are you the one who is coming in to my life, the one whom my heart is searching for? Or is there another?
A question to ponder for the 3rd Sunday of Advent:
WHAT DO YOU HEAR AND SEE? …
… when you are in the silence?
… gazing at Jesus on the cross?
… when reading His word, the scriptures?
… when you receive Him in the Eucharist?
When he comes in to our lives we will experience true joy, eternal joy! And we will see and hear amazing things!
Let us quiet our hearts amidst the busyness that can be as we draw near to the celebration of Christmas and listen for His answer.
