Topic: Day 2 of Advent: Getting to Know Jesus
Watch the "Getting to Know Jesus" video and add a short but meaningful reflection and join in the discussion here.
There's a big difference between knowing about someone versus actually knowing them. This Advent, we want to get to know Jesus, not just know about him. That's what Advent is about—preparing to meet him and to know him. Let's take a closer look at that . . .
Jesus wants you to get to know him.
Write down one way you can purposefully meet Jesus this Advent. Here are some ideas, but feel free to come up with your own! You could spend one minute in silence each day to simply be calm and listen for Jesus’s voice. Write the word “joy” on a card and tape it to your bathroom mirror. Or read one chapter from the Gospels every morning.
Jesus, open my eyes and my heart so that I may recognize when I am encountering you.
