The story is told of three prospectors who found a rich vein of gold in California during the gold rush days.
They realized what a great discovery they had and decided, "We’ve have a really good thing going here as long as no one else finds out about it." So they each took a vow to keep it secret.
Then they headed for town to file their claims and get the equipment necessary to mine the gold. True to their vows, they didn’t say a word to anybody. They filed their claim, bought the equipment, and headed back to their mine. But when they did, a crowd of people followed them.
And the reason was because the expression on their faces had given them away. Their faces were aglow in anticipation of the wealth that soon would be theirs. People knew that they must have found something very special. So a crowd followed them out of town.
The word Advent comes from the Latin word “adventus”, meaning coming. For Christians, Advent has a dual meaning. It reminds us of God’s love coming to us in the Christ child, Jesus, the baby lying in a manger, and it also reminds us that Christ promised to come again in all his glory, to take his beloved children unto himself.
For us then, Advent and Christmas is a time of great anticipation and yes, excitement. And yet, there is also an aura, not luminous but animus feeling of dread: Am I ready to meet God, face to face? Am I ready to stand before God’s throne and will I hear God say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant”? Certainly we are sinners saved by grace, but have we done all that we could have done to be faithful to the Christ child who gave his life for us?
As a believer in the Christ, I want to do all that I can do, not to earn my salvation, but to be faithful to God. This Christmas season, let’s be faithful, and let’s have an expression on our faces that tells the whole world that this Christ child is in our hearts. And maybe, just maybe, the crowds will follow us because they know we have the “Good News.”
May Advent be in your heart.
