Already but not Yet
It is the first week of Advent to prepare ourselves for Christmas, the coming of God among us. Today Jesus tells us to be on the “Watch”, but it can be tiring and a struggle to stay on watch. The Christian life is a life of “already but not yet”. Jesus has won the war, but we still fight the battle and that battle is a struggle that we all undergo. We pray that God may give us the strength to always keep up the struggle and never made a truce with Satan and his evil and despair, but always get back up and continue to struggle to our dying breath.
