Advent Calendar – Day 27

Peace Please

Today is December 24,2011, Christmas Eve. Today’s readings (in their entirety) come from Luke.
67     And his father Zechari’ah was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,
68     “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and redeemed his people,
69     and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David,
70     as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
71     that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us;
72     to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant,
73     the oath which he swore to our father Abraham,
74     to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear,
75     in holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life.
76     And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
77     to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins,
78     through the tender mercy of our God, when the day shall dawn upon us from on high
79     to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

(Luke 1:67-79)

Spend it with your loved ones…they won’t be always around.
